CZML References

I noticed in vertexPositions czml you are able to reference other position elements in the czml. Is this possible for other properties? For example, if I have a series of sensors on a satellite, can I reference the position (and possibly orientation) defined in the satellite for each of the sensors so I don't have to send duplicate data to the client?


Hi Jon. The answer is “not yet, but soon”. Right now duplicate data is your only choice but we plan on adding a reference property that works similar to how vertexPositions works but would allow you to reference any property for any property. It’s more of an issue in refactoring how we load CZML in Cesium, which is something I’m actively looking at.

Sounds good, thanks!
