  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.

    I initially begin my research about incorporating GIS spatial data into game engine. I use Unity as visual interface.I suspect there must be a way (script) to connect from GIS database (3D attribute, parameter) into Unity schene.
    Is there anyone experience with this issue?

    You can certainly read external files and construct 3D objects from the data using the mesh scripting interface in Unity. As I understand it, GIS is a lot of different formats, so you'd probably want to concentrate on just one.
