CESIUM open-source JavaScript library for world-class 3D globes and maps

• Cesiumjs.org

Overview

CesiumJS is a geospatial 3D mapping platform for creating virtual globes. Our mission is to create the leading web-based globe and map for visualizing dynamic data. We strive for the best possible performance, precision, visual quality, ease of use, platform support, and content.


feature

3D Tiles

Stream, style, and interact with heterogeneous 3D data, including photogrammetry models, 3D buildings, CAD and BIM exterior and interiors, and point clouds.

feature

Terrain and Imagery Layers

Stream imagery and high-resolution global terrain using open standards and custom tiling schemes.

feature

3D Models

Visualize 3D models using glTF, the runtime asset format for WebGL.

feature

Vectors and Geometry

Load KML, GeoJSON, TopoJSON, and CZML. Use the Cesium API directly to draw a wide array of features and geometries.

feature

Time-Dynamic Visualization

See our first-class support for high-fidelity time-dynamic simulation, real-time telemetry streaming, and 4D visualization.

feature

3D, 2D, and 2.5D Columbus View

Use one API for three views.

Community Demos

We are amazed by the incredible apps the community builds. See the 3D maps they're building with Cesium or showcase your own work.
