How to load terrain models


I'd like to know if there is a way to load on the global terrain my own terrain model, not supplanting the global model but loading just specific areas.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance.


The Cesium globe only supports one terrain datasource at a time, so in order to display your terrain as part of the global terrain you would need to combine the datasets into one source.

Cesium has support for heightmaps and quantized mesh terrain formats. For processing terrain data into the quantized mesh format, AGI (the company that employs most of the Cesium team) has a product called the STK Terrain Server. IIf you’re interested, you can learn more about that here:
