Regarding the Desktop UI:
The design for the Navigation Widget from the earlier mail certainly looks good however I feel it somehow doesn’t integrate with the existing widgets so well. So with a view to unite the designs for the Playback Widget and the Navigation Widget, I have implemented some mock-ups which I have attached as a pdf with this mail. It is just a concept drawing and would undergo any necessary improvements required.
Regarding the Mobile UI:
As also mentioned in the previous mail, the above design for the Navigation Widget consumes a lot of space and would be troublesome to be used on a cellphone however it may be feasible on a tablet.
In order to improve the usability of Cesium on cellphones, one of the possible options can be:
To implement the following control buttons. The touch action will get the control of the active button (default would be PAN). This will definitely save a lot of space for the actual content and be simple enough for the users to understand.
PAN LOOK ZOOM ROTATE TILT
The above PAN and LOOK buttons can also be provided on the Desktop.
The left click will get the control of the active button hence this may solve the problem of providing a seperate LOOK widget or even separate “modes” on UI.
