Re: [location-iwg] Presentation for the upcoming meeting.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts Tim.

I also checked out Cesium when I first met Matt. The combination of perspectives Cesium offers is pretty impressive. Building on what Tim noticed, it is very clear they put a lot of thought into their architecture and design to make it powerful and easy to re-use... very nice to see.

I encourage each of us to make good use of this list by using it for communication & helping to build the community. There a number of influential and innovative companies, projects, and individuals represented here already.

All the best,

Message sent from mobile device on vacation caveats aside, I'll add in my praise for Cesium. 

Of all the browser-based, open source, 3D globe clients, Cesium shows the most promise. 

While I can't speak for the potential to grow a boarder developer community, AGI clearly have the engineering talent to develop a highly functional globe client.  If they can engage others in Cesium development, they'll have a sustainable project.

Personally, I'm excited about the potential for an OpenLayers adapter for Cesium (or, in the future, a Cesium renderer for OpenLayers).  On its own, Cesium has a ton of value.  Paired with OL, Cesium deals in all standard/common protocols and formats and provides a virtual globe.

I look forward to hearing how the presentation goes.
