3D Tiles: Beyond 2D Tiling


This talk presents the next big initiative from the Cesium team: 3D Tiles.

3D Tiles are an open specification for streaming massive heterogeneous 3D geospatial datasets, including 3D buildings, trees, point clouds, vector data, and terrain.

This talk covers:

* Why traditional 2D tiling schemes don't generalize well to 3D.
* How 3D Tiles provides flexibility and performance for diverse 3D use cases.
* The relationship between 3D Tiles and glTF, the open-standard runtime 3D model format from Khronos.
* The state of the 3D Tiles ecosystem, including the open-source Cesium implementation.

Come learn how to visualize a million individual selectable and styleable buildings in true 3D.
