Cesium Story Depicts Damage in Ukraine
A new Cesium Story created by Professor Hidenori Watanave, of the University of Tokyo, and Professor Taichi Furuhashi, of Aoyama Gakuin University, shows the damage in Ukraine.
The Cesium Story ranges all across Ukraine and the surrounding region. It brings together 3D photogrammetry data and satellite imagery from a number of sources and places them all on a Cesium globe. The base layer of global labeled satellite imagery provides geospatial context for what users are seeing, and they can zoom out to see where the images belong in relation to the country as a whole.
Professor Hidenori Watanave is a long-time member of the Cesium community. His projects archive the human impact of major world events, including the bombing of Hiroshima, the devastating earthquake and tsunami at Fukushima, and the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Cesium Stories provides a simple interface to create and share 3D geospatial presentations without writing any code. In this story, most of the imagery is placed using the ground overlay feature of KMZ.
