As the term says, vertical exaggeration means to exaggerate (or enlarge) your features vertically - most of the cases to visualize the elevation differences.

For mainly a flat surface or in a small-scale map, vertical exaggeration can help capturing readily (otherwise unnoticeable) elevation changes in the terrain.

In ArcScene, right click on your layer > Layer Properties. Then under ‘Base Heights’ tab, you will see ‘Z Unit Conversion’, where you can choose your desirable factors to better view changes in the vertical direction.

Have fun. Smile
