Displav Symbols (images, icons)/Features


what is the best way to display up to 10.000 symbols/icons/small images on the globe ?

We try to use billboards, but we have the problem that the small images/icons
are partly not displayed/seen, because they are hidden by the terrain.

Is it possible to display icons/billboards plane on the terrain, in the sandcastle
example the billboards are displayed vertical over the terrain?



Hi Rüdiger,

You could use SingleTileImageryProvider (see the tutorial), but I don’t think it will scale well to 10,000 images unless they are all static and you can put them in a single - perhaps tiled - image.

However, there will be some improvements to Cesium in this area, where we’ll be able to drape a large number of polygons on terrain. Watch #2172.
