NCGIS is the largest state GIS conference in the US. We were happy to be invited to speak about Cesium. Join us next Thursday, February 26, in Raleigh, NC for our talk:

The Rise of 3D GIS on the Web by Patrick Cozzi

Abstract:

With the introduction of WebGL and the wide availability of fast GPUs on desktop and mobile, the foundations for web-based 3D GIS have been laid. Web-based 3D GIS enables plugin-free, cross-platform, compelling visualization. The challenge now is to build apps and data workflows to bridge GIS to the web. Using Cesium, an open-source JavaScript library for creating 3D globes as a case study, we will explore industry trends and future development.
