2019 Highlights


We are wrapping up a remarkable year for Cesium! From CesiumJS to the team to our community, 2019 brought major milestones. Here are some of the highlights:

Being our own company means we can dedicate more resources to unlocking the potential of real world 3D data. And we’re excited about it! I celebrated our spinout with a quilt of the Cesium logo.

  • 3D Tiles was approved as an Open Geospatial Consortium Community Standard.

3D Tiles is designed to make massive and complex 3D data more useable. Being an open standard also makes that date more accessible and interoperable across all kinds of tools and applications.

  • CesiumJS surpassed 800,000 lifetime downloads!

We love seeing the incredible things the Cesium community is building! We look forward to continuing to support CesiumJS with you.

We love our new home in Philly!

  • We grew our team from 12 to 20!

This photo was taken just as we were beginning to grow this year: we’ve added many new faces since!

  • We collaborated with some incredible friends and partners, including Vricon, Uber, and Esri.

Collaboration allows us to expand the 3D geospatial ecosystem. This year we teamed up to provide 3D content with Vricon, urban mapping with Uber, and ArcGIS terrain with Esri.

  • We were recognized for our work on open standards and 3D geospatial.

Gabby Getz was named the Younger Geospatial Professional of the Year and Patrick Cozzi received a Khronie Award.

Cesium World Terrain offers incredibly high resolution, in some places up to 50 cm! You can set your own data in this high resolution context with Cesium ion.

  • We connected with our community and customers at events and conferences.

We jumped at the chance to meet in person with Cesium users and the larger community through conferences throughout the year, including FOSS4G NA, SIGGRAPH, GEOINT, and I/ITSEC.

A huge thank you to our customers, friends, advisers, and most of all, the team and the Cesium community for advancing 3D geospatial in a big way this year. We’re looking forward to even bigger things in 2020, and we can’t wait for what’s next!
