Google Photorealistic 3D Tiles Now Available in Cesium Stories

Cesium Stories, our free app that enables users to create 3D geospatial presentations and stories without writing a single line of code, now allows you to include Google Maps Platform Photorealistic 3D Tiles.

Since the announcement of our partnership with Google Maps Platform last month, we’ve seen an incredible response from the developer community. Now, anyone can use this data to create interactive 3D geospatial presentations set in the more than 2,500 cities and 49 countries represented in Photorealistic 3D Tiles.

Click through the Cesium Story to see examples of what the community is building with Cesium and Google Maps Platform Photorealistic 3D Tiles.

Cesium Stories provides an easy-to-use interface to navigate to a place in the world, capture the view in 3D, and add text and images to tell your story. You can fuse Google Photorealistic 3D Tiles or our 3D Cesium World Terrain basemap with your own 3D and 2D data to build richer and more complex stories. Cesium Stories can be shared with a simple link or website embed.
