Mesh based on ground elevation


I wonder if it is possible to create a mesh with a surface following the ground elevation. The goal for this is to create a mesh for a specific area (defined by a rectangular area), create meshes for different altitudes (e.g. 10m above ground) and project a raster onto this irregular surface (either using WMS or a Image Provider). I tried to find something similar in this forum or on Cesium JS samples, but couldn’t find anything really useful.


Hi @dekeen Welcome here!
There are many examples in sandcastle which can be helpful to you:




It seems like you wanna create heatmap on the basis of terrain elevation values. If it is, you may check this repo link and this post also. I personally haven’t tried this.
