Adding Cesium with OSGeoLive

Hi

I have made a small video (screencasting) of the progress which I have made so far in adding Cesium with OSGeoLive. Let me know your inputs.

Bala,

Once again, thanks so much for your contribution here.

From the video, it looks like WebGL was hardware-accelerated in the VM? Is that correct? When you pan and zoom inside Cesium, is performance reasonable?

Also, for future maintenance, where is your install script maintained in source control?

Bala,

I guess this is what you were asking for. Mine is a old hardware hence
performance was slow. I was surprised to see the virutal globe rendering
inside my Guest "OSGeoLive" whereas the browser on my host was not able to.

Also, for future maintenance, where is your install script maintained in
source control?

I am not sure where to put the code as I am not that comfortable with svn,
So I have currently put it on pastebin
<http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=jX7wd0PL> to download. Currently I am
thinking of creating menu which says "Install Cesium", Once user clicks on
it Cesium would get downloaded and installed on this users system. I am
not very clear if that is what the OSGeoLive people want. The advantage of
this is it won't occupy any disk space till the time the user wants to try
it. The downside is of course user needs to have internet to download
Cesium.

Hi All - I created an “install_cesiusm.sh” just now and added it to the
current OSGeoLive repo.

After some testing, we can add it into the actual build. Thanks for this
contribution!

I am looking forward to seeing Cesium in action…
