The goal of the 3D Data Container and Tiles API Pilot has been to explore an integrated suite of draft specifications for 3D geospatial resources, compatible with existing OGC 3D delivery standards such as the 3D Portrayal Service, I3S, and 3D Tiles Community Standard. This suite supports smooth transitions between 2D and 3D environments; allows applications working with 2D tiled resources to get 3D tiled resources; and enables 3D tile bounding volumes to support multiple data containers.
To achieve these goals, the Pilot developed a draft API that is compatible with the OGC API group of standards (and candidate standards) and which allows access to, and query of, 3D geospatial data, with a corresponding container format for streamed data delivery compatible with glTF. The Pilot funded a number of data server and client implementations to test the new API and data delivery. Further, the Pilot included an analysis of characteristics and capabilities of the new API in comparison with existing or emerging 2D standards.
