The 8.1 version of VirtualGeo brings you support for a new, standard format: 3D Tiles!

3D Tiles is a format, which has been pushed by Cesium. It is an specification built on glTF, an open standard for efficient streaming and rendering of 3D models and scenes.

This format has many important features for dealing with massive heterogeneous 3D geospatial content across desktop, Web and mobile applications in a standard and open format.

3D Tiles is now supported by VirtualGeo ! The 8.1 version includes preliminary support, mainly focused on 3D Tiles visualisation for large textured 3D mesh.

The forthcoming release (9.0) will also offer the capability to produce 3D Tiles from source cartographic data using the VirtualGeo solution.
