Thank you Gérald!

If I am right, the WFS Provider creates differents 3D geometries that are
added to the scene (Line, Point or 2,5D from building footprint). WM(T)S
provider, on the other hand, creates a texture which is draped on the
(Please correct me if I'm wrong).

Since I'm looking to add a texture to the ground from a vector format, is
it possible that  WMTS_Provider is the closest provider for my need?

Instead of reading a raster, we could draw on a canvas like :
or maybe a little bit more in our geographic related environment :

Best regards,
