I’ve been going over the capabilities of Cesium for my Angular-Cesium application and our application ingests generated KML files from a Java backend. All of that seems to be going well, but I want to be able to take the KML and transform it into a collection of Cesium Entities. I know there is the exportKml(options) function available which “Exports an EntityCollection as a KML document,” but is there anything available that does the reverse? I want to take an existing KML and convert the data into Cesium entities or parse the entire KML as CZML if the former isn’t possible out-of-the-box. Ultimately I need to be able to interact with and manipulate the entities in a way that the raw KML doesn’t allow as far as I’m aware.
I’m fairly new to Cesium so I would appreciate if anyone could provide me with some options to achieving this. I’m sorry if there is an example of this already available, but I didn’t see anything in the Sandcastle demos.
