Improved documentation and tutorials was one of the items brought up during the 2015 roadmap discussions, so as part of the huge 1.6 push, we also wrote a new tutorial, Visualizing Spatial Data. It is meant to serve as many users’ first dive into the Cesium API. It is almost exclusively based around the revamped Entity API, also introduced in 1.6 and should be incredibly beneficial to new and veteran users alike. If you have a moment, please check it out and provide feedback in this thread
We’re hoping to use any feedback you provide to guide future tutorials as well as help us go back and update existing ones.
I don’t want to taint anyone’s opinion too much, but as the author of this specific tutorial (and with a part two already planned) I’m personally curious about the answer to some of the following questions:
Was the mix of code and explanation a good balance?
Do you like the fact that we rely on Sandcastle for interactive snippets?
Do you find the links to the reference documentation throughout the tutorial useful?
What did you think of the order of the material? Should we have covered some things before others?
Did we gloss over any details you think should have been more thoroughly covered?
…or spend too much time on any specific area?
