I3S is used to stream 3D geospatial content of any size to mobile, web and desktop clients.
14 January 2021: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the proposal for a revision to the OGC Indexed 3D Scene Layers (I3S) Community Standard. The proposed revision is defined in the I3S Version 1.2 Community Standard Work Item Justification document. Comments are due by February 15, 2021.
I3S enables the streaming and storage of arbitrarily large amounts of 3D geographic data. An I3S dataset, referred to as a Scene Layer, can consist of millions of discrete 3D objects with attributes, integrated surface meshes, symbolized points, or billions of point cloud data covering vast geographic areas. Designed for performance and scalability, a scene layer enables the efficient encoding and transmission of various types of geospatial content for an interactive visualization experience on web browsers, mobile, and desktop apps for both offline and online access. A Scene Layer can be accessed in the form of a web service or Scene Layer Package (SLPK) – a file-based exchange format.
I3S is web and cloud friendly and is rooted...
