How to populate the globe with multiple Pins or Billboards from database?

Hi there.

What is the most performant and easiest way to draw pins or markers on the map?

Performant because i like to draw multiple thousand or even millions of objects (not at once)

Hi there,

If you are looking for a common data format to deliver this information, common ones are CZML, GeoJson, and KML.

The most performant way would be to use the Primitive API with a billboard collection, but that is fairly low level. The most common way of rendering pins or markers is with the Entity API, which is also what will be used behind the scenes if you load a CZML, GeoJson, and KML.
