Custom geometries of San Francisco from an I3S Service, visualized in the Tygron Platform

The I3S (Indexed 3D Scene Layer Specification) is a format for large 3D Geo datasets. The specification is especially designed for streaming large 3D data over the web. The specification originates from Esri and was adopted as a Community Standard by the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) in 2017. In ArcGIS software, an I3S dataset can be visualized using a Scene Layer.

In the Tygron Platform it is possible to add your own 3D models as Custom Geometries. The format for these models which the Tygron Platform supports is I3S.
Different other formats, such as BIM data or a SketchUp model, can be converted to the I3S format with a SLPK file. Read on to learn more about this.

What is an SLPK?

A Scene Layer Package (SLPK) is a file format for the storage/exchange of one or more I3S layers.
