OGC adopts ‘3D Tiles’ built on glTF as Community Standard

The Khronos Group is proud to have a liaison with Open Geo Spatial who today announces their adoption of 3D Tiles as a Community Standard, built on glTF3D transmission format. 3D tiles, submitted to the OGC by a team led by Cesium, is designed for streaming heterogenous 3D geospatial content to clients for visualization. Neil Trevett, Khronos President, commented “It is great to see the first fruits of the recent liaison agreement between OGC and Khronos come to life with the 3D Tiles Community Standard being built on Khronos’ glTF 3D transmission format. Khronos looks forward to exploring multiple upcoming opportunities to cooperate with OGC to build valuable standards and initiatives for the geospatial industry.” Read the press release.

VkRunner is a tool written by Neil Roberts, inspired by shader_runner. VkRunner was the result of the Igalia work to enable ARB_gl_spirv extension for Intel’s i965 driver on Mesa, where there was a need to test driver’s code against a good number of shaders to be sure that it was fine. Neil has written a blog post with example code on how to use VkRunner.
