Cesium ion

Cesium ion is a robust, scalable, and secure platform for 3D geospatial data. Upload your content and Cesium ion will optimize it, tile it into web friendly formats, serve it up in the cloud, and stream it out to any device.

With Cesium ion, you'll have access to our curated 3D content including Cesium World Terrain and Bing Maps imagery. Fuse this with your own data to see your data on a 3D map of the world, or just provide more context.

Our tools are built for 3D geospatial—and tied to precise map coordinates. We first built Cesium to track objects in space, and the incredible precision required is baked into our platform.

Tile your 3D data

Upload your data to create 3D Tiles, the optimal way to stream massive 3D content.

Fuse with curated content

Combine your data with high-resolution terrain and imagery for global coverage and show where your data fits in the world.

Host securely in the cloud

Our hosting it tuned to serve massive 3D datasets as quickly, efficiently, and securely as possible.
