Hi Cesium Team,
We are trying to work on a project where we can import per-feature data for infrastructure from a model (towers/poles - to be exact)
We have seen read both of of the below issues and followed them -
Have also seen this post about supporting per feature data on import to ION - https://cesium.com/blog/2020/04/09/kml-collada-metadata/
At the moment - our workflow is Revit > export to DAE (with plugin) > Sketchup - Export as KMZ.
When we import into ION we now can click on the asset and bring up a table (which we can add data to in the extendeddata tab of the KML.
What we haven’t been able to work out yet is how to do this at a per feature level (IE for individual aspects of the tower) and if this is possible. Is there a better workflow here that we are missing?
Based on the announcement above - it seems that if you are uploading collada files, they need to be accompanied by an KML with the relevant feature information, and if you use the DAE file itself no data is pulled in?
Is there a specific way (or documentation) as to how the data needs to be imported at a per feature level?
Another interesting thing when importing as KMZ which we haven’t seen is the base of the asset sits below the terrain. We haven’t seen this when importing as DAE, OBJ or otherwise - and we can’t adjust the position of the KML. Screenshot below.
The asset ID is - 214099
