OpenLayers - Cesium integration library. Create your map using OpenLayers 3, and visualize it on a globe with Cesium.


Switch smoothly between 2D and 3D and synchronize:

  • Map context (bounding box and zoom level);
  • Raster data sources;
  • Vector data sources in 2D and 3D;
  • Map selection (selected items).

The library is configurable and extensible and allows:

  • Lazy or eager loading of Cesium
  • Limiting Cesium resource consumption (idle detection)

Stay tuned for more exciting features like animated transitions between map and globe view, and synchronization of maps in projections other than EPSG:4326 and EPSG:3857.
