Web publishing with Cesium

The upcoming release of ContextCapture can generate 3D models with level-of-detail in the Cesium 3D Tiles format, for streaming and display in Cesium web applications. Cesium is an open-source JavaScript library for 3D globes and 3D maps.


Check out the two demos below:

Optionally, ContextCapture can generate a base Cesium application which can be directly published to the Web. Cesium is purely client-based, so the Cesium 3D Tiles data and the Cesium application can be hosted on a static Web server. Online file storage web services / content delivery networks such as Azure Blobs/CDN or Amazon S3/CloudFront are also supported.

We will present this new feature at Siggraph 2016 in Anaheim, CA, in a Birds of a Feather session on Virtual Globes Using WebGL and Cesium: Tuesday, 26 July, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, Anaheim Convention Center.

Stay tuned for this upcoming ContextCapture release!
