viewquery parameter to the CesiumViewer app, which sets the initial camera position using longitude, latitude, height, heading, pitch and roll. For example: http://cesiumjs.org/Cesium/Build/Apps/CesiumViewer/index.html?view=-75.0,40.0,300.0,9.0,-13.0,3.0
Label.heightReferenceto clamp billboards and labels to terrain.
- Added support for the CESIUM_binary_glTF extension for loading binary blobs of glTF to
Model. See Faster 3D Models with Binary glTF.
- Added support for the CESIUM_RTC glTF extension for high-precision rendering to
PointPrimitiveCollection, which are faster and use less memory than billboards with circles.
Entity.pointto use the new
PointPrimitiveinstead of billboards. This does not change the
Scene.pickPositionto reconstruct the WGS84 position from window coordinates.
- The default mouse controls now support panning and zooming on 3D models and other opaque geometry.
