About Working with 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. Remote TerraExplorer clients can access all spatial data types including terrain (MPT/TBP), map (raster-WMS/WMTS), feature (WFS/WFS-T), 3D Mesh (3DML, OGC 3D Tiles, I3S/SLPK), and point cloud (CPT, OGC 3D Tiles) using SkylineGlobe Server’s streaming services. All data on your server is cataloged and referenced so you can easily find the specific published layer required.

Individual geospatial layers and complete projects can be directly uploaded and published to the cloud server from TerraExplorer or other Skyline client applications, thus streamlining your workflow and eliminating the need for any server-side login after initial installation. Through a single publishing operation, data is made ready for consumption by all TerraExplorer clients: Desktop, Mobile, and TerraExplorer Fusion, as well as standard geospatial applications. Server-side geospatial layers that are stored in existing data stores on the server can also be published by scanning their data stores and publishing selected layers.
