I have the pleasure of once again mentoring André Nunes as part of this year’s Google Summer of Code. Long time mailing list readers may remember André from the initial KML support he worked on as part of in GSoC 2013. This time around he will be implementing native Cesium support for both GPS Exchange Format (GPX) and Shapefiles. While some users have had success converting these formats to ones Cesium already supports, like GeoJSON or CZML, native support will be more complete and also make it easy for Cesium to ingest the millions of files that already exist.
If you’re interested in either of these formats, consider this the official place to discuss them and ask any questions you may have. André will also be posting status updates and other info here as he makes progress.
Welcome back André!
