Hi, we're in the middle of adding Cesium terrain support to WhirlyGlobe-Maply and I had a question.
It look as if the terrain tiles coming out of the Cesium server are in a tiling scheme that starts with 2 Y chunks at the lowest level. Are these in Plate Carree (stretched out lat/lon) as well?
It also looks like you're draping those on top of Bing imagery, which I believe is spherical mercator (ish). There's also an example of Mapbox imagery, which is definitely web mercator.
So, are you slicing and dicing the imagery to match the elevation tiles?
If so, are there are any imagery sources out there with a direct mapping to your terrain tiling scheme?
For that matter, are there any Cesium terrain examples that are pure web mercator with the regular TMS tiling scheme?
I notice the terrain generation tools have some flexibility in that area, so we can probably generate a tiling scheme to match what we need. I'd just like to test against something before going down that path.
