I am working on a project in the Industrial Engineering department of my University and for an upcoming IE conference in May we would like to showcase a drone simulation project we have been working on. The concern is that due to limited bandwidth we will not have optimal performance to show the simulator.
After some research it would seem that using Cesium Terrain Server https://github.com/geo-data/cesium-terrain-server
Along with Cesium Terrain Builder
Will allow us to host and serve the tiles. My confusion is how we generate the actual tile data. e.g. 20x20 square distance from lat/lon coords using x zoom levels.
From the Cesium Terrain Builder information it would seem I need to create GDAL raster representing a Digital Elevation Model (DEM).
How do I create an input raster?
Lastly, is there a better way to use cached tile data for offline use?
