First of all I would like to congratulate the cesium team for their wonderful work. I would also like to be part of it. I am an undergrad student from India and I would like to participate in GSoC 2013 under cesium.
I have looked into the ideas page and has selected the idea “Vector Data Visualization with JSON”. I have already contacted Matt who will be mentoring this project.
I have successfully set up my development environment and forked the source code for both cesium and czml-writer. I have successfully built the projects. However many tests didn’t pass which belong to the renderer layer of the cesium architecture stack. I am looking for the reason to why they failed.
Right now I am reading through the czml, geoJSON and topoJSON specifications. Along with it I am studying the czml-writer and the DynamicScene architecture as suggested by Matt. Also i am understanding cesium through the documentation and demos.
At present I am not aware how exactly dynamicObjectCollection handles czml. But I think the aim of this project is to incorporate similar processing capability for the other formats. There can also be a conversion mechanism, which converts the other formats to czml. Please tell me more about this.
