Spatial Data and Cesium

 

Spatial data coming to a web browser has never been easier. There are combinations of using applications for visualising spatial data. There are programming languages, frameworks and tools for executing spatial data visualisation. Out of these, the most popular tool that is used is JavaScript for both front-end and back-end development. AteamIndia employs Vue JS and Cesium combination for visualising spatial data. Vue JS as a framework is highly compatible with Cesium as they both share a common base.  There are also libraries like OpenLayers, Three.js and Babylon.js which are known for creating interactive maps as well as spatial data on maps. However, these are only fit for 2D data. Later on, 3D models supporting 3D data and maps became popular. In order to share these across programs and web, data standards were created. An example of this is CityGML. This is used particularly for sharing city models.

Cesium JS is now a very popular and widely adopted JavaScript library. It is the product of an open-source community. What makes it great is that it has enabled visualisation of 3D data possible on practically every device. However, it is not easily streamable. To make it easy, 3D tiles was developed. The geospatial data is huge and the tiles are an open specification that can stream all the 3D content like buildings, trees etc.

Even though a lot of organisations use CesiumJS and 3D tiles for the purpose of visualising 2D spatial data, in 2018, an additional mapping platform was introduced to complement this. This was the Cesium Ion platform. This is a platform that provides three options:

  • 3D tiling pipeline for streaming the data into any device effectively
  • Cesium Ion SDK for extending visualisations
  • 3D content-like imagery

In order to further modify the existing 3D tiling pipeline system, Cesium Ion introduced integration with FME data integration platform by Safe Software. This further made streaming easy and seamless. It’s a three-step process. The 3D data is first processed with FME. The uploading, tiling and streaming are dealt by Cesium.js. FME integration has many benefits. it helps to keep the web application up to date. This is because as and when there is a change in the underlying data, new visualisations will be created automatically. Thus, there is an automated system of workflow.

Those who use FME will have two format writers. One for writing the 3D tiles and the other for 3D point clouds. These make visualising with Cesium extremely easy. Safe Software also comes up with updated features of FME integration. The next one is this year, 2019, which will be a new Cesium Ion transformer. This new feature will extract the data from FME and process it into Cesium Ion creating a web visualisation with URL. This will be displayed right away in the browser. Cesium by itself and with the collaborations with other tools and frameworks have proved to be a great application for mapping spatial data. It is now widely used in all industries like sports, automobiles etc.

JavaScript Functionalities You Must Be Aware Of

Javascript

It is inevitable to know JavaScript  to have a successful and eventful career in the software industry. Lest you are aware of all the peculiar item sets in an array that can give you a quarter of the time to keep on pondering or else may surprise you in a jiffy!

The List of Peculiarities

  1. Familiarity with the core language

JavaScript is highly acclaimed to be one of the simplest scripting languages as compared to Python, which may surprise you. However, to our dismay, though, it is really simple to grasp, it is extremely vast and can make your brains fume out of anguish for the ever-popping exception that may come of nowhere. As we all know, Python has a standard set of libraries that can be directly employed on your code. It relaxes the programmer’s efforts. Though JavaScript falls short in this criterion, it can be highly regarded for its simplicity. It is highly robust, architecture neutral and platform independent.

  1. Know-how on Async code

Though it is easy to say one is well proficient in JavaScript, the asynchronous codes available can make you run for the campus lectures back again. Asynchronous codes have no time stringent conditions but are directly involved with system clock closely supervising your time complexity. Any jitters or delays will be scrutinised and most importantly, an exception arises making you have a time consuming check all over the code once more!

  1. Plays coy with at least one set of developer tools

Debugging and troubleshooting are the principle domains of development. A fantastic collaboration of developer tools for diagnosing errors and examining application code snippet exists in JavaScript. To energise your dev skills it is necessary to have clear cut information on Debugging tools.

  1. Proficiency with JavaScript functions

The core of the JavaScript language is laid on functions. It is necessary to utilise them fluently. That means understanding unction declaration, definition, its body, call and return values.

  1. Quirky with basic design tasks

Basic design tasks are a crucial necessity unless you would have to face professional limitations. This may be intriguing since designers need nothing much of coding skill and are a highly creativity demanding area. To be true, when you are a sole server-side developer, there arise certain stances where you would have to work for a designer and fit his space, or there will be situations where design specifications are not met with user requirements. Enhancing the visual appeal can also be highly encouraging and an interesting work to do which demands a creative outlook and can alleviate your left brain a twitch to think out of the box and bring something innovative and extraordinary that is truly yours and a product of your mind. Art and science is a beautiful merge that delivers wonders!

aTeamIndia – Top Rated JavaScript Developers in a Single Basket

Top Rated JavaScript Developers in a Single Basket

 

JavaScript is a simple yet complicated programming language. Only a developer who is very skilled and having well knowledge in the language can use it properly. If you have the requisite knowledge in the subject then JavaScript can be the treasure trough of solutions for all your digital questions. Before using any kind of technology, aTeamIndia ensures to make a thorough analysis and enquiry into the technology. They use a trial and error method for this purpose. This is how they chose JavaScript. They have put together a group of the best JavaScript developers who are well trained in JavaScript and all the other languages that are built around it. These developers are the best in the online development market.

According to a recent survey, around 95% of websites use JavaScript. A popular framework means many good perks. ATeamIndia’s top JavaScript team can help you to decode the functioning of Java and help your website flourish. ATeamIndia is widely known for their responsive and interactive websites. Many of their clients have made their websites the primary source of promotion and advertising. This is possible because of a distinct feature of JavaScript. This feature is none other than the custom client-side scripts. JavaScript also provides the scope of using a cross platform run time engine along with it. For example, Node.js is used to write the server side code in JavaScript. It can also combine other languages to make web pages so that they look good across all platforms and browsers. A large number of websites are still effectively using it as a client side script. ATeamIndia writes a custom client side script using JavaScript and incorporates it into HTML smoothly. They make the user interface of the website richer with the help of this feature. This has dual benefits: it reduces server interaction and server load.

Even though JavaScript is an interpreted complex language, it can make development easier and simpler. ATeamIndia can now provide you simplified composition of a website with the help of this feature. Their developers use JavaScript libraries to create shadow DOM boundaries. DOM can further decouple the individual library components.

Integrating MEAN stack technology is also a great feature of aTeamIndia. It uses the four components of MEAN stack namely MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js and Node.js. Each of these components has a different function and contributes different components to the website. Using this, their web developers can write both the front-end and back-end of the website. This is possible only because of JavaScript. They also use it to optimise a website for both computer and mobile phone users. For this, a single code is more convenient. ATeamIndia developers combine CSS3, HTML5 and JavaScript to make this single code and create responsive web pages. ATeamIndia developers can further increase the uses of JavaScript using transpilers like coffeescript, typescript etc. Each transpiler helps the developers to manage large enterprise applications smoothly. A main reason why aTeamIndia has incorporated JavaScript is because it keeps evolving. Because of this feature, it can meet all kinds of needs. Thus, aTeamIndia has simplified the multifaceted JavaScript framework.
