Flight Planning

Build Flight Tools on a Precise Globe

The Cesium platform provides everything you need to build powerful flight planning and simulation apps. With roots in aerospace, we understand the need for precision and accuracy, and the heart of Cesium is a WGS84 globe, enhanced with Cesium global 3D terrain, imagery, and buildings. Build with CesiumJS, our web-based visualization engine for time-dynamic data, or with Cesium for Unreal for a game engine experience, and create the perfect digital environment in which to explore and analyze flight data.

Success Stories
