I am currently working on a project where I would need to display a scene full of navy surface ships moving in real-time based on data from a database. Each of these ships will each contain specific features like weaponry and other machinery that would be selectable. Thanks to the community members here, I realize I can use 3D tiles to implement this. However, I still need clarification on some of the aspects to 3D tiles.
Are the 3D tiles able to move/ be dynamic? Most of the examples of 3D tiles that I’ve seen so far are stuck to a specific location. I would like to have the ships move to different locations in real-time while keeping their property of having clickable features.
How would I go about serving these tiles without using the Cesium ion 3D tiling pipeline? I understand it is an amazing tool, however licensing is a major consideration for me so unfortunately I am bound to free options. Could I simply use a static Apache HTTP server and serve all of the 3D tiles from there? Or could I use the server from the 3d-tiles-sample repo?
I truly appreciate all of the help that you guys have done for me thus far. Thanks in advance!
