From Seabed to Space

For those that need to deliver GEOINT that is accurate, timely, relevant, and discoverable from all domains from seabed to space, the Cesium platforms offers high-quality 3D visualization and runtime performance, advanced analytics, and data interoperability in the cloud or self-hosted.

Near Real-Time 3D Geospatial Visualization

Cesium enables performant streaming and visualization of massive geospatial datasets in a dynamic 3D environment.

Interoperability and Open Standards

Built on open standards 3D Tiles and glTF, Cesium facilitates interoperability and data exchange across platforms.

Advanced Analysis and Simulation

Extract insights and perform complex geospatial analysis such as terrain analysis, line-of-sight calculations, visibility analysis, and other advanced spatial computations.

Cross-Platform, Cloud, and Self-Hosted Deployment

Cesium runs in the cloud, and on any device, enabling users to collaborate, share, and visualize data anytime and anywhere, or run it securely in your environment.

Developer-Friendly Environment

Cesium offers a comprehensive set of tools, APIs, and SDKs that empower developers to extend the platform to meet requirements, encouraging innovation, rapid prototyping, and the creation of custom geospatial solutions.

The Cesium platform leverages 3D Tiles, an OGC open standard we created for streaming massive heterogeneous 3D datasets at runtime.

3D Tiles has been adopted for the Army's One World Terrain Well-Formed Format, the Google Maps Platform API for Photorealistic 3D Tiles, and is leveraged by companies like Reveal, whose Farsight app enables them to access relevant and actionable intelligence in disconnected environments.
