CesiumJS is the exciting open-source library for creating high quality global visualizations for the Earth or any spherical celestial body you desire, using static and/or dynamic data. CesiumJS is the leading solution replacement for the now discontinued Google Earth providing, even greater functionality and quality then previously seen.
In this hands on workshop we will setup a fully working CesiumJS work environment and explore Cesium’s javascripting capabilities to create interactive maps including 3D terrain. We will then prepare data to be used for mapping onto our 3D terrains, add 3D objects, explore environmental (atmospheric) controls and a whole lot more. We will do all of this in Cesium’s wonderful development/test environment ‘Sandcastle’. We will conclude by moving our work to a full-fledged web served interactive webpage complete with html, css and JavaScript codes.
Skill Level: A bare bones understanding off what Javascript is and are comfortable with some coding language. For the purposes of this tutorial we will work directly in Cesium’s wonderful development/test environment ‘Sandcastle’
Requirements: This is a hands on tutorial. If you wish to follow along, please make sure you have a machine that’s capable of running CesiumJS. To test this please visit this page; https://cesiumjs.org/Cesium/Apps/HelloWorld.html. If the page loads and you see a pretty image of the Earth, then congratulations you’re ready to go.
