Build a Flight Tracker

This tutorial shows you how to build your first Cesium app to visualize a real flight from San Francisco to Copenhagen, with radar data collected by FlightRadar24.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Set up and deploy your Cesium app on the web
  • Add base layers of global 3D buildings, terrain, and imagery
  • Accurately visualize an airplane from a list of positions over time

Before you get started

We’re going to get global satellite imagery, 3D buildings, and terrain from Cesium ion, an open platform for streaming and hosting 3D content.

Sign up for a free Cesium ion account if you don’t already have one.

Once you’re logged in:

  1. Go to your Access Tokens tab.
  2. Note the copy button next to the default token. We’ll use this token in the next step.

Step 1. Set up your Cesium app

We’re going to create our app using CesiumJS, an open source JavaScript engine. We’ll use Glitch, an online IDE, to host our app.

  1. Click here to create a new Glitch project using the basic template we put together.
  2. Click on index.html in the left-side panel to see the app’s code.
  3. Replace your_token_here with your access token from your tokens page.
  4. Run the app by clicking Show in the top and select Next to The Code.

The code in index.html so far does three things:

  • Imports the CesiumJS library. The JavaScript and CSS files are loaded in these two lines:

<script src="https://cesiumjs.org/releases/1.75/Build/Cesium/Cesium.js"></script>
<link href="https://cesiumjs.org/releases/1.75/Build/Cesium/Widgets/widgets.css" rel="stylesheet">
  • Adds an HTML container for the scene: <div id="cesiumContainer"></div>.
  • Initializes the viewer with const viewer = new Cesium.Viewer('cesiumContainer');.

You now have a basic CesiumJS app running in your browser with global satellite imagery from Cesium ion.

Configure auto-refresh

Glitch will automatically refresh the page every time the code changes. You can toggle this by clicking on the project name in the top left and unchecking this box:

Use the refresh button on top of the app window to re-run the app:

Step 2. Add global 3D buildings and terrain

Let’s add a few global layers to our scene. Your Cesium ion account has access to the following assets by default:

  • Cesium World Terrain — high resolution terrain with up to 1 meter accuracy.
  • Cesium OSM Buildings — over 350 million buildings derived from OpenStreetMap data.
  • Bing Maps Aerial Imagery — global satellite imagery with up to 15 cm resolution.

Your app is already using the Bing Maps layer.

  1. Replace your JavaScript code in index.html with the code below, keeping your access token line from before.
  2. Explore the scene by clicking and dragging. Tilt the camera by holding CTRL while dragging.
Copy to clipboard. Data copied clipboard.
// Keep your `Cesium.Ion.defaultAccessToken = 'your_token_here'` line above. 
// STEP 2 CODE
// Initialize the viewer with Cesium World Terrain.
const viewer = new Cesium.Viewer('cesiumContainer', {
  terrainProvider: Cesium.createWorldTerrain()
});
// Add Cesium OSM Buildings.
const osmBuildings = viewer.scene.primitives.add(Cesium.createOsmBuildings());
// Fly the camera to San Francisco using longitude, latitude, and height.
viewer.camera.flyTo({
  destination: Cesium.Cartesian3.fromDegrees(-122.384, 37.62, 4000)
});

Notice that higher levels of detail are loaded as you zoom in. This allows us to visualize the entire planet with the accuracy required for making real world decisions.

This is possible because we’re using 3D Tiles, an open standard we pioneered for streaming 3D content to any device. Learn how to convert your own data to 3D Tiles.

Step 3. Visualize individual samples

FlightRadar24 tracks air traffic using a number of methods, including radar. For simplicity, we’ll copy the radar data directly into our app, but you can later extend this code to parse the original data, or even visualize live air traffic as samples are passed to your app from a server. If you’re curious, the raw data collected for this flight is available for download.

  1. Add the code below to visualize a single point in your scene and fly the camera to it.
  2. Click on the red point to see the description attached to it. This description can be used to attach information like the exact position of each point, or the time it was captured.
Copy to clipboard. Data copied clipboard.
// STEP 3 CODE (first point)
// This is one of the first radar samples collected for our flight.
const dataPoint = { longitude: -122.38985, latitude: 37.61864, height: -27.32 };
// Mark this location with a red point.
const pointEntity = viewer.entities.add({
  description: `First data point at (${dataPoint.longitude}, ${dataPoint.latitude})`,
  position: Cesium.Cartesian3.fromDegrees(dataPoint.longitude, dataPoint.latitude, dataPoint.height),
  point: { pixelSize: 10, color: Cesium.Color.RED }
});
// Fly the camera to this point.
viewer.flyTo(pointEntity);
  1. To visualize the entire series of radar samples, replace the code (step 3) above with the following snippet.
Copy to clipboard. Data copied clipboard.
// STEP 3 CODE (all points)
// These are all the radar points from this flight.
const flightData = JSON.parse(

Now you can see the full series of the plane’s radar samples, from the gate, to the runway, all the way to landing on the runway in Copenhagen!

What coordinate system are we using?

Coordinates in CesiumJS are expressed in ECEF using the Cartesian3 class. In this system, the origin (0, 0, 0) is the center of the Earth.

This is why we use Cartesian3.fromDegrees to convert from longitude, latitude, and height to X, Y, and Z in ECEF.

The height in CesiumJS is in meters relative to the WGS84 ellipsoid. We’ve pre-processed the radar data to convert the heights from feet relative to mean sea level to meters relative to the ellipsoid.

Step 4. Visualize movement over time

So far we’ve visualized the individual radar samples. CesiumJS has built-in support for interpolating between samples collected over time so we can see where the airplane was at any given moment.

We will create a SampledPositionProperty to store each position along with a timestamp. The source data doesn’t include a timestamp for each sample, but we know the flight number was SK936, which was scheduled to depart on March 9, 2020 at 4:10 pm PST. We’ll assume the position samples were taken 30 seconds apart.

A transatlantic flight like this is a good example of how a 3D visualization is often easier to interpet. In reality, the line that connects the radar samples is mostly straight. On a 2D map, it would appear curved when using the common web mercator projection:

Step 5. Upload an airplane model

As a final step we’re going to attach a 3D model of an airplane to our entity instead of the green point.

  1. Download the 3D model of the airplane.
  2. Go to your account dashboard. Drag and drop the model file on this page.
  3. Select 3D Model (Convert to glTF), then click Upload.
  4. After it’s done processing, find the asset ID by selecting the new asset back in your dashboard and looking under the preview window on the right.

Step 6. Attach the airplane model

  1. Remove the code starting with the line:
    // STEP 4 CODE (green circle entity)
    through the end of the code.
  2. Add the following code instead.
  3. Replace your_asset_id with your asset ID.

// STEP 6 CODE (airplane entity)
async function loadModel() {
  // Load the glTF model from Cesium ion.
  const airplaneUri = await Cesium.IonResource.fromAssetId(your_asset_id);
  const airplaneEntity = viewer.entities.add({
    availability: new Cesium.TimeIntervalCollection([ new Cesium.TimeInterval({ start: start, stop: stop }) ]),
    position: positionProperty,
    // Attach the 3D model instead of the green point.
    model: { uri: airplaneUri },
    // Automatically compute the orientation from the position.
    orientation: new Cesium.VelocityOrientationProperty(positionProperty),    
    path: new Cesium.PathGraphics({ width: 3 })
  });
  
  viewer.trackedEntity = airplaneEntity;
}

loadModel();

You now have an airplane model following the flight radar samples! If you have your own 3D model, try adding it to your scene instead of the provided model.
