For anyone interested, the OGC is in a comment period for 3D Portrayal
Service Standard.  Details below.

Best regards, Eli


Please note:  This Request is scheduled to close on 27 February 2015.

In the last decade, progress in airborne and mobile laser scanning and
photogrammetric methods has brought an explosion of terrain data and
detailed 3D models of the built environment. The 3d models are often
maintained in proprietary environments. The Open Geospatial Consortium
(OGC) and the Web3D Consortium have both been working to address the
need for interoperability, as well as the content challenges of
volume, access speed, and diversity of devices. The Web3D Consortium
has focused on open standards for real-time 3D visualization,
including streaming, and their members developed a Geospatial
Component extension for X3D. The OGC has focused on developing a
service interface to provide interoperable access to 3D geospatial
data servers. In 2012, a group of OGC members, building on work done
in both organizations, completed the 3D Portrayal Interoperability
Experiment (3DPIE) to develop and evaluate best practices for 3D
portrayal services.
