Cesium was built to visualize data over time, whether that’s geological changes spanning hundreds of years or satellite orbits that need to be tracked down to a fraction of a second. As part of our official launch of Cesium Stories, we’re happy to announce improved support for time-dynamic data, so you can drag and drop animated KML or CZML to create interactive stories that visualize changing data.
This is a great way to review drone flights and telemetry data collected over time, since you can see the drone’s path in the surrounding environment—anywhere in the world.
Or if you’re doing your analysis offline in tools like STK, you can export your work as CZML and share easily using a link.
Time-dynamic data doesn’t have to be objects that move over time. Our users also map house prices, disease outbreaks, and changing landscapes.
