What is Cesium ?

Cesium is A 3D mapping engine coded in JavaScript working on top of WebGL, perfect for rendering interactive, realistic maps and virtual globes .

Cesium is basically an abstract JavaScript API for various mapping controls and display methods, allowing developers to easily create, manipulate, and control maps via JavaScript code.Cesium supports 2D, 2.5D, and 3D display modes, and can be used for both flat maps and realistic globes (planetary view).Maps created with Cesium can be animated, zoomed in and out, improved with additional controls, and even overlayed with shapes, paths, and explanatory text and labels.Real-life terrain can also be plotted via WebGL, without having to install any browser plugin or add-on.Map data can be acquired from CZML files, KML, TMS, WMS, Bing, ESRI, or OpenStreetMaps.If the core Cesium distribution doesn’t include the feature you’d want your maps to have, don’t despair. Just check its plugin repository because there might be a plugin for that.

This is changelog for Cesium version 1.11 :

  • Added, a boolean for hiding or showing an entity and its children.
