Cesium at I/ITSEC 2022

Cesium will be at this year’s Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), the world's largest modeling, simulation, and training event, in Orlando, Florida, from November 28 to December 2. 

Visit us in booth 2266 to meet the team and experience Cesium demos curated for the modeling and simulation community. 

We’ll be showing off the following and more:

Cesium for Unreal

Cesium for Unreal is a free, open-source plugin that brings precise, real-world data into Unreal Engine at global scale, providing high visual realism and accurate physics and enabling models to interact with geo-specific environments. Download from UE Marketplace.

The Cesium for Unreal demo enables the user to explore nine locations or free roam anywhere on the globe in a variety of modes (third person, ground vehicle, drone, etc.).

Or try your hand at a game built with Cesium for Unreal and real-world data of Los Angeles, California.

Cesium 4D for Operations

CesiumJS provides 4D visualization for operations use cases such as analysis, planning, common operating picture (COP), and rehearsal. Together with Maxar and OpenSensorHub, we’re leveraging 3D Tiles Next and the One World Terrain Well-Formed Format to enable 4D visualization and tooling for measurements, line of sight, viewshed analysis, and more.

3D Tiles Next

3D Tiles Next is a set of extensions for streaming interactive 3D at scale that improve the ability to:

  • efficiently stream semantic metadata
  • run massive simulations and analytics via spatial indexes
  • integrate with the glTF software and extension ecosystem

The extensions for 3D Tiles Next enable streaming game-like geospatial experiences to the open metaverse across devices, including current and future VR and AR wearables. 3D Tiles Next takes advantage of 5G and compute both at edge and in the cloud, to improve 3D geospatial experiences in an open and interoperable ecosystem. 

In developing 3D Tiles Next, we collaborated closely with Maxar to ensure the extensions will serve the modeling and simulation community’s needs for efficient runtime terrain for training, simulation, and operations.

Guest demos in the Cesium booth

All days:

Cesium + Exyn: CesiumJS demo built with our friends at Exyn, featuring high-resolution insets within global context and analytical tools like line-of-sight and uncertainty picking, plus place and adjust sensors. This demo combines point cloud data from Exyn with photogrammetry from Maxar, Nearmap, and Bentley Systems. 

Cesium + NVIDIA:

Cesium and NVIDIA collaborate to showcase a demo built on open standards and interoperability connecting different platforms for modeling, simulation, and operational use cases to support the metaverse. This demo features geospatial data from Cesium as 3D Tiles streamed into NVIDIA Omniverse, combined with NVIDIA Omniverse’s simulation capabilities to showcase a rocket launch scenario from Cape Canaveral and the situational awareness and operational environment around rocket launches.
