This BOF explores applying computer graphics techniques to cartographic and spatial datasets. I will give a Cesium overview and demo.
Wednesday, July 24
2-2:55pm, California Ballroom A&B (Hilton Anaheim)
I have been working with Khronos, the open-standards group, on glTF, the runtime asset format for WebGL, OpenGL ES, and OpenGL. We will give an update on the spec and tool progress since GDC, and I will demo glTF assets in Cesium.
6-6:55pm, California Ballroom A (Hilton Anaheim)
The WebGL BOF is a series of short cutting-edge demos by the WebGL Community. I will briefly introduce Cesium, and Chris Cooper from NICTA will demo their Cesium app.
Thursday, July 25
2-5:15pm, Room 304 A-D
Kevin Ring and I are presenting our technical work in this course along with folks from AMD, Avalanche Studios, and id Software. It will be a great mix of massive world rendering techniques for both game and real-world datasets. This course was featured in SIGGRAPHITTI. Our slides will be on our publications page after the conference.
