Vricon, a producer of geospatial 3D solutions, and Cesium—a complete platform for building time-dynamic, 3D geospatial applications—are disrupting the geospatial industry by providing accurate 3D geodata in the cloud and making it accessible for free until 24 June.
Announced at this year’s GEOINT 2019 Symposium in San Antonio, Texas, Vricon and Cesium are providing 3D digital surface models through Cesium ion, starting with highly detailed datasets for six cities.
Vricon and Cesium are making 3D Tiles available for a three-week trial that ends on 24 June. Users can access these data sets by signing up for an ion account and navigating to the Asset Depot. For users new to Cesium, the Getting Started guide is a great place to begin.
Working with 3D data in Cesium ion enables users to see the world as it really exists, explain what they’re seeing more clearly, and help better convey their findings. During the free trial, it’s easy for developers and geospatial data users to login into or sign up for a Cesium ion account and start streaming Vricon 3D data to applications on any device.
“Because Vricon 3D data is now available through Cesium ion, individual users can experience the full power of 3D imagery,” said Magnus Brege, Vricon CEO. “Cesium ion is enabling us to provide access to a whole new set of users.”
The 3D Tiles free trial includes Cairo, Egypt; Caracas, Venezuela; Damascus, Syria; Tehran, Iran; Honolulu, Hawaii; and San Francisco, California.
“This free trial marks the beginning of a larger partnership with Vricon where we’ll provide access to more of their 3D photogrammetry data in Cesium,” said Patrick Cozzi, creator of Cesium. “We want more people to try applying 3D data to their mission, fuse it with other data, experience it through mobile devices—and see how this can help the important work they do.”
Vricon and Cesium invite GEOINT 2019 Symposium participants to visit their booths to view demonstrations of 3D analytics using Vricon data and Cesium ion. Vricon is located in booth 701, and Cesium is located in booth 727.
