Cesium is the latest company to be awarded an Unreal Megagrant. The award was granted to develop a plugin to bring Cesium’s full-scale, high-precision 3D globe to Unreal Engine. According to the announcement, this will open “a world of possibilities for Unreal’s users. Together we will advance training & simulation, architecture, games, AR/VR, autonomous driving, and other industries by enabling 3D Tiles to be streamed into Unreal for accurate visualization of real-world locations captured by satellites and drones”.
When released the Cesium for Unreal plugin will be open-source and available on the Unreal Marketplace. The plugin will allow the user to connect to the Cesium ion SaaS that will provide tiles of 3D terrain and building data and access to content pipelines for generating efficient 3D Tiles from source data such as terrain, imagery, and photogrammetry models.
