Cesium requires WebGL, an open standard for displaying 3D content in a web browser. Unfortunately, your browser does not appear to support WebGL. Internet Explorer users can install the Chrome Frame plug-in, otherwise try a WebGL-compatible browser, such as Chrome or Firefox. For the best experience, it is recommended to update your video card drivers (NVIDIA | AMD) as well.
Dive into Cesium with live code editing in Sandcastle. Explore the gallery of examples and edit them in your web browser without installing anything. Cesium applications built with Sandcastle can even be saved and downloaded.
The Cesium blog contains project announcements and technical content on Cesium and the technologies used to implement it.
One API, Three Views
Cesium supports a 3D globe, 2D map, and 2.5D Columbus View with the same API. Transition between views with one line of code.

Animate time dynamic scenes from
Visualize worldwide terrain from multiple sources.
Draw imagery layers using WMS, TMS, OpenStreetMaps, Bing, and Esri standards.
Draw vector data from KML and ESRI Shapefiles.
Use plugins to extend core Cesium.
Built for Precision and Performance
Draw polylines, polygons, circles, icons, labels, and custom objects. Use the
to change their appearance.
