These initial terrain and imagery tiling pipelines and curated assets represent the first steps in fully unlocking the potential of 3D content. We will continue to curate more 3D content and add tiling pipelines for 3D Tiles for photogrammetry, point clouds, BIM, CAD, 3D buildings, and vector data.

Community accounts are licensed for personal, exploratory, and unfunded educational use. For commercial, government, and funded research, commercial accounts with larger monthly limits are available. Commercial accounts start at $149 per month; see the pricing page.
