Support tiling vector data into 3D Tiles

Moving this issue from here

Adding support tiling vector data into 3D Tiles on Cesium ion is on our roadmap. This would allow you to visualize large amounts of vector in 3D, with clamping on terrain, by loading higher levels of detail based on the current camera view, in the same way that 3D Tiles allows you to do this for massive point clouds, 3D models etc.

You can subscribe to this topic to be notified when this is possible with Cesium ion.


hello, this is an important feature for 3D vector tile(not 2d vector), is there any progress on this?

I am very interested in this topic too. Any progress?

Hello, thank you for your interest in this feature. Support for tiling vector data is on our near-term roadmap, but we do not have a timeline for it yet. We’re looking forward to when we can announce further updates.

Hi @Matt_Boyd-Surka & @omar, has there been any further development regarding vector tiles? We have vector data such as shapefiles & geojson which we would like to display in CesiumJS.
This sandcastle displays a vector file as a 3D Tileset, but I can’t find any documentation on converting a vector file to a 3D Tileset. Is this possible with the ION on premise pipeline?
If not, what would you suggest would be the best method to display vector data in CesiumJS, as performance can be quite poor when streaming native vector files.

I have come across FME, which can convert vector data to Cesium 3D Tiles, but would obviously prefer a solution developed by Cesium for converting to 3D Tiles.


@Matt_Boyd-Surka @omar is there any update on this capability? I would love to be able to use Vector tiles
