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,

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
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.
