Noob looking to replace GE's webplugin

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I do some very simple point an line based kml files that I have been sharing via the now defunct GE web plugin and also directly via GE. I’d like to get the funcitonality going in Cesium, but not sure how to call the files. Also is there a tree layer view available similar to GE’s? Sorry for the noob questions. Thanks!


Hi Scott,

Glad to hear you’re interested in Cesium! We do have support for KML and support most commonly used KML features. Take a look at this demo for how to load KML into a Cesium appplication:

For reference, we also have a specific Google Earth to Cesium tutorial section on our website:

If you have any more questions, I’m happy to answer them =)
