Cesium Release Roundup February 2021


CesiumJS 1.78 release

CesiumJS 1.78 is now available with various updates. Highlights of the release include:

  • Added BillboardCollection.show, EntityCluster.show, LabelCollection.show, PointPrimitiveCollection.show, and PolylineCollection.show for a convenient way to control show of the entire collection.
  • TaskProcessor now accepts an absolute URL in addition to a worker name as its first parameter. This makes it possible to use custom web workers with Cesium’s task processing system without copying them to Cesium’s Workers directory.

You now have more control over showing billboards, polylines, and other entities.

See the changelog for a full list of updates and links to the discussion & code on each one. You can also subscribe to the CesiumJS release thread on our community forum to get notifications about our monthly releases.

This month we’ve got our eye on Sky-Drones, an enterprise drone company using Cesium for real-time control and unmanned traffic management. The company provides complete UAV solutions, including the drones and software to manage them, to clients performing remote inspections, precision agriculture, law enforcement, and medical deliveries to hospitals fighting COVID-19.

Cesium is an essential component of their flight planning services, allowing pilots to visually create flight paths that they can see in the context of high resolution Cesium World Terrain, weather information, and airspace data.
