I’m on a small, limited-budget team working on a self-funded, proof-of-concept-stage product using Cesium. The product needs 3D terrain data (often in relatively small regions of the globe) and we’ve been prototyping very happily online with Cesium’s online World Terran.
Ultimately the product will need to be deployed with zero internet access and we are hoping to self-host 3D quantized mesh terrain. (We are aware of AGI’s presumably excellent commercial solution and maybe will one day use it, but at this speculative stage it is way out of our budget.) To my novice way of thinking, there are three pieces to this step: 1) The actual terrain data 2) Conversion of data to Cesium-compatible quantized mesh 3) Server for converted terrain data
Is anyone on the list doing this (self-hosting 3D terrain data that they did not originate) in a way that they like? Which of these three components have Open Source solutions? (Am I even correct in thinking of it as those three pieces?)
Any advice (links) would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks for the excellent-so-far community!
