State of the OL-Cesium library
06-29, 11:00–11:30 (Europe/Tirane), Mirusha

OL-Cesium is a popular Open source Javascript library that you can leverage to add 3D to a new or existing OpenLayers application. You code the logics in a single place and it gets applied to both OpenLayers 2D map and Cesium 3D globe. The library handles the synchronization of the view, layers, styling, for you. This behaviour is customizable.

Since its creation, 9 years ago, the library has attracted a large community of users. It has evolved to follow OpenLayers, Cesium and the global javascript ecosystem.
This talk is about the strengths of the library, its state and the plans for the future.
