Some Stunning Views of Our Planet on Earth Day


At Cesium today we’re celebrating Earth Day!

One of the best part of my job is exploring our planet every day as I work with Cesium, specifically our terrain data. Cesium World Terrain, curated terrain with resolution as high as 50 cm in some areas, is an easy way to see some stunning 3D views around the world.

So in honor of 49 years of Earth Day and 4.5 billion years of Earth, here’s some of the spots that caught my eye.
