Billboard look at compass angle

I have an issue. When I use rotate view the billboard rotates as well.

How to set billboard to look always at the same specified angle ?

Billboards are always perpendicular to the view of the camera, and that’s exactly why you normally want to use them. Depending on the orientation of your object with the respect to the earth, you could use a rectangle, polygon or wall I suppose. I would first try creating a Entity with the polygon’s points to be defined as the corners of the surface.


You might be able to use the Billboard.alignedAxis property. If you set billboard.alignedAxis = Cesium.Cartesian3.UNIT_Z; the billboard will always point north, so it will rotate as the globe does.
