Esri Integrates 3D Tiles into ArcGIS System of Record, Enhancing 3D GIS Workflows
Esri, the global leader in GIS technology, has announced the integration of 3D Tiles into its ArcGIS software, offering enhanced capabilities for 3D GIS workflows. The integration of 3D Tiles, an open 3D data standard, enables users to work with various data types and develop innovative solutions like digital twins with ease. With the ability to stream and render massive 3D geospatial content quickly and efficiently, 3D Tiles provides interoperability and is widely used across industries. The upcoming release of ArcGIS Pro 3.2 will allow users to consume integrated mesh and 3D object elements of a 3D Tile tileset, combining them with other GIS layers for exploratory tools, analysis, animations, and more. Esri's integration of 3D Tiles demonstrates their commitment to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards and their dedication to providing users with powerful analytic capabilities within a complete GIS environment. The integration will soon be available in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise, expanding support for developers throughout the ArcGIS Platform.
