On-Premise 3D Tiling Pipeline

Cesium ion's command line tools optimize your data for a lightweight and smooth streaming experience using the best tiling algorithms available. As the creators of 3D Tiles and CesiumJS, we have unique knowledge for turning raw 3D data into pixels on any screen.

Optimal tiling

Go beyond basic tiling to ensure efficient streaming and the best visual experience with techniques such as adaptive subdivision and content-aware compression.


ion’s command line tools easily integrate into any platform and require minimal input to fit your data.

High performance

Accelerate tiling using all available CPU resources and out-of-core implementations that scale to large datasets on any hardware.
