At Cesium we’re building an end-to-end platform for creating 3D mapping and visualization applications that are fast and highly accurate. We want data providers and app developers to be able to easily render massive heterogenous datasets online and on a globe, create beautiful visualizations, run detailed and precise analysis, and ultimately better use and understand the data being collected around them. You’ll improve this platform, enhance existing features and functionality, and add new ones dreamt up by yourself, our team, and our clients.
