I am trying to add a 3D building layer with preferably as a tile (in GeoServer) to my Leaflet map. I have difficulty to find a tutorial for that. If you know a good link it would be great. I am open to any third party library like OSMBuilding.

I have found some questions like: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41560237/how-to-get-the-vector-tile-by-geoserver


3D Map Visualization in Geoserver

but nothing that could help me to figure this out.


Leaflet is only 2D library for creating interactive maps. It can not visualize in 3D. For 3D visualization you can try cesium.js or THREEjs as open source third party libraries.

  • I have looked at cesium.js and it isdocumented very well and really worth spending time on that. up-voted – mohsen hs Oct 11 '17 at 19:13

F4 maps can provide 3d tiles. see here

  • This was mind blowing, Neg point: not free, I love the cranes! – mohsen hs Oct 11 '17 at 18:53
