Terrain describes the shape or surface geometry of the globe. A terrain dataset is sometimes known as a Digital Elevation Model (DEM).
Cesium supports a wide variety of standard terrain formats and servers, not just the few tilesets shown here. See the Terrain Tutorial for information about hooking up Cesium to your terrain data.
