Using the tiler
A typical tiler command follows the following format:
<layer-type> can be TMS or WMTS.
For example, a small drone-collected courtyard image is included at
SampleData/Courtyard.tif. Tile it into a TMS layer by running:
This will produce a TMS tileset in the
When providing multiple, overlapping images, files earlier in the list will be given preference. For best results, make sure all input files have the same meters-per-pixel resolution. Otherwise, the final resolution of the tileset might be too low for the highest resolution input or too high for the lowest resolution input.
The imagery tiler automatically reprojects the input to
EPSG:3857 Web Mercator if it isn’t already.
Below is a full list of command line options to configure the tiler.

||One or more imagery files to be tiled into a single layer. For overlapping imagery, files earlier in the list will be given preference. Imagery files can have 1 to 4 bands with the 4th band treated as alpha, but all input files must have the same number of bands. Most raster formats are supported. We’re always adding support for more so don’t hesitate to reach out if you found something that’s incompatible. Required if

Now that we’ve tiled our imagery, the next step is to stream it into CesiumJS. All we need is a web server to host the tiles and then we can specify a URL to the imagery.
The example below adds TMS imagery to CesiumJS.
The Hosting 3D Content tutorial walks you through setting up the Cesium ion Asset Server and streaming your imagery with CesiumJS.
