Migrating from Google Earth to Cesium - How to begin your closed-to-open source success story
From 2008 until recently, the proprietary Google Earth ecosystem was the primary tool for 3D geospatial visualization on the web.

As a result, many developers have looked to open source and open standards as a replacement solution in order to avoid the vendor lock-in they endured in the past.
Attendees will come away with a good understanding of the differences between Cesium and Google Earth, potential problem areas they may encounter, and the resources available to help developers who want to begin the migration process.
