Change a layer's drawing priority order and navigate in Globe mode

Draped layers that have overlapping extents need to have a drawing priority set so one layer gets drawn on top of the other. ArcGlobe makes some assumptions to accomplish this, using criteria such as the cell size of a raster layer. Occasionally, you’ll need to override the ArcGlobe default drawing priorities. One way to do this is to change the order of draped layers as they appear in the Type page of the table of contents.
ArcGlobe has two viewing modes: Globe and Surface. Globe mode allows you to navigate your data in the realm of the whole globe and sets the camera target to the center of the globe. Surface mode lets you work with your data at a lower elevation, allows additional perspective viewing characteristics, and sets the camera target on the surface of the globe. You’ll learn how to navigate in Globe mode first, then in Surface mode. The Navigate tool is active when you start ArcGlobe. You can see the names of other tools on the Tools toolbar by hovering the pointer over the tool.
