1. A concise explanation of the problem you’re experiencing.

How to build a Web portal to accept 3D models as input and convert it to a tilemap

undersea topography using an open-source (non-GPL) solution to render the underwater topology

on a web page.

2. A minimal code example. If you’ve found a bug, this helps us reproduce and repair it.

3. Context. Why do you need to do this? We might know a better way to accomplish your goal.

4. The Cesium version you’re using, your operating system and browser.
