peakery is a guide to the world’s mountains, allowing users to find mountains, plan routes, and share their trips. The site features more than 600,000 peaks, each with an interactive 3D map powered by the high-resolution Cesium World Terrain.

Designed for hikers and climbers of all experience levels, the site includes peaks ranging from Mount Everest to that hill on the edge of town. Founder Scott Kendall said he appreciates how seamless Cesium is for users:

In the past peakery had integrated 3D visualizations that required a browser plug-in. Downloading a plug-in was a huge barrier for people. Cesium’s impressive rendering performance in the browser with no plug-in is a huge advantage for our users.
