Space-Time Insight, Inc. (San Mateo, California) includes Cesium as an integral part of the SI Suite platform. Companies in asset-intensive industries such as utilities and transportation deploy SI Suite to manage and optimize their assets. One of the prominent features in the analytics framework is the Cesium-based map window. The window supports multiple base map providers and a large set of visualization features to portray both 2D and 3D data, as shown in the screenshots above.
SI Suite includes a Java/Tomcat-based server infrastructure (SI Server), an HTML5-based application viewer framework (SI Viewer), and a complete Eclipse-based application development environment (SI Studio). SI Studio applies a visual programming paradigm to make it intuitive to create visual/analytics applications, including map visualization using Cesium.
Previous versions of SI Suite supported the Google Earth API and browser plugin, but due to Google’s retirement of both, Space-Time Insight evaluated and selected Cesium as the most visually compatible 3D map framework, ensuring a smooth transition for its customers. The open source nature of Cesium also allows Space-Time Insight to explore extensions to or integration with core Cesium as required.
