Bentley Systems has been named a co-founder of the new Cesium Consortium, along with Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI).

The Cesium Consortium is an open-source, browser-based virtual globe, first developed by AGI in 2011 for the aerospace and defense communities.

Cesium streams massive datasets through a browser to desktops, tablets and smartphones for geospatial viewing. The consortium will collaborate on a roadmap to accelerate and support the requirements for building infrastructure modeling.
