SkylineGlobe Server

SkylineGlobe Server (SGS) is a private cloud solution that provides a comprehensive set of web services for publishing, storing, managing and streaming 3D spatial data. The server’s built-in complete user access control system allows easy management of users, groups, and administrative roles controlling the server-side storage and client-side read/write permissions.


Supports streaming services for all your data types

  • Terrain (MPT/TBP)
  • Map (WMS/WMTS)
  • Feature (WFS/WFS-T)
  • 3D Mesh (3DML, 3D Cesium tiles)
  • Point Cloud (CPT, 3D Cesium tiles)

Publishing and Cataloging Services

Client-side and server side publishing

  • Upload and publish geospatial data to the cloud server directly from TE or other Skyline client application.
  • Publish server-side geospatial layers stored in files and databases on the server.
  • Automatic and manual extraction of metadata and geospatial information.
  • Advanced client-side search options for data layers and projects.

OGC Compliance

Stream raster, and feature data to any application that reads the standard OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, and WMTS protocols
