It brings an accurate virtual globe, 3D Tiles, and access to curated 3D geospatial data to Omniverse Kit-based applications.
The open-source visualization plug-in Cesium has been launched for NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for creating and operating metaverse applications. It should empower software developers to build digital twins using accurate, massive, real-world 3D geospatial data.
Cesium for Omniverse brings the following capabilities to Omniverse Kit-based applications, such as Omniverse USD Composer and Omniverse Code:
- An accurate virtual globe using global Cesium World Terrain, Microsoft Bing imagery, and Cesium OSM Buildings, streaming to a WGS84 ellipsoid utilizing double precision geospatial computation intrinsics;
- An efficient 3D Tiles open standard streaming engine for massive 3D geospatial data, with level-of-detail selection, caching, and asynchronous IO;
- Cesium ion integration to access curated 3D geospatial data and 3D tiling pipelines to optimize real-world 3D geospatial data for streaming.
Cesium for Omniverse remains open source and is distributed via the Apache 2.0 license. Get it here and don't forget to join our 80 Level Talent platform and our Telegram channel, follow us on Instagram and Twitter, where we share breakdowns, the latest news, awesome artworks, and more.
