Data Security

Layer access can easily be restricted to the users, groups, and sites that you want, by setting the desired view and access in SkylineGlobe Server. Users will only see and be able to load from SkylineGlobe Server the layers that are available to them, based on their login.

Customize and Integrate

Utilizing the TerraExplorer for Web (TE4W) app as a foundation, you can leverage the application framework and functionality, thus reducing the amount of programming required for your customized solution: create custom configurations, localize GUI texts, customize and expand TE4W capabilities with JS tools, or create a custom HTML with the TE4W window embedded inside, using TE4W and its underlying Cesium API to customize your application.

For Developers

TerraExplorer’s rich application programming interface (API) allows you to easily develop powerful, customized 3D applications or integrate TerraExplorer capabilities in OEM applications.
