SKYLINE GLOBE SERVER 

Overview

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. The server’s built-in complete user access control system allows easy management of users, groups, and administrative roles controlling the server-side storage and client-side read/write permissions.

 

SkylineGlobe Server is a private cloud solution that provides a comprehensive set of web services for publishing, storing, managing and streaming 3D spatial data. SkylineGlobe Server provides streaming services for all your spatial data types including terrain (MPT/TBP), map (WMS/WMTS), feature (WFS/WFS-T), 3D Mesh (3DML), and point cloud (CPT, 3D Cesium tiles). All data on your server is cataloged and referenced so clients can easily find the specific published layer required. Your data is kept safe by multiple security layers, including restriction of each user group to predefined data folders and a robust user authentication mechanism.

 

SkylineGlobe Server repackages the retired TerraGate and SFS products into a unified server technology and management interface from which to control and manage the complete 3D geospatial data lifecycle. SkylineGlobe Server can be configured as a single server or as part of a collection of servers (server cluster) that communicate with each other in order to serve data to clients with higher availability. 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 TE for Web, as well as other OGC clients. 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.

 

The server’s built-in complete user access control system allows easy management of users, groups, and administrative roles controlling the server-side storage and client-side read/write permissions. The SkylineGlobe Server package includes TerraExplorer for Web (TE4W), a lightweight 3D GIS viewer that seamlessly accesses online data from Skyline’s SkylineGlobe Server, enabling you to view high resolution, stunningly realistic SkylineGlobe 3D content in a web browser, without any plug-ins. Building on standard Cesium support for imagery, elevation and KML layers, TerraExplorer for Web can also display most of your spatial databases including 3D city layers and feature layers.

 

Concurrent Users Mechanism

The maximum number of concurrent active users is now defined per cluster of servers, rather than per specific server. This increases your flexibility, enabling you to add and remove servers without modification to your license file.

 

Skyline Floating License Server

SGS v7.1 supports floating licenses from the Skyline Floating License Server (SFLS). This allows you to create a cloud-based licensing mechanism where only the SFLS machine is located on a physical machine with a known machine code and all SGS servers can be installed on virtual machines with no known machine code.

Maximum Concurrent Users per Group

New setting provides a means of controlling the distribution of concurrent users among different user groups, by enabling you to set limits on the number of concurrent users for each group.

 

Statistics Reports

Display statistics reports for both data access (data streaming) and data upload to SGS. Wide range of filters and multiple presentations of the search results make it easy to obtain the precise information you need.
