Create 3D Spatial Cesium Models with FME

Cesium is a 3D platform used for visualizing various features around the globe. The platform uses techniques learned from graphics research, the movie industry and the gaming industry to create high-level visuals of your 3D spatial data. With FME as your data sidekick, you will be able to develop models with highly detailed objects, like buildings and trees, in your Cesium 3D Tiles.

Design Unique Displays

Take your CAD models, point clouds, vectors or raster data and use them to develop highly detailed Cesium models. FME supports 400+ formats which you can read in, use transformers to manipulate, and then write out as Cesium b3dm 3D Tiles. Transformers like the Extruder and AppearanceSetter make it easy for you to design your model precisely for your needs - no coding required!
