CircleCI npm version

Create amazing mapping applications using Cesium and Angular components. Angular-Cesium is focused on high performance and simple usage. Check out our Docs and our blog post Intro to angular-cesium.

Getting started

If you are using Angular CLI, you can add the angular-cesium library using schematics

  • add
    $ ng add angular-cesium
    #### Manual installation details here.


  • You can try and learn about angular-cesium from our demo.
  • The demo contains many examples, check out the
  • Run:
    $ git clone
    $ cd angular-cesium
    $ yarn
    $ yarn demo:start
    $ open http://localhost:4200
  • More demos:

Basic example

  • In your HTML file :
  • ac-map
    creates the map
  • ac-layer
    component represent an array of entities that will be displayed on the map.
    • acFor
      attribute accepts an RxObserver
      will subscribe to the observer and will handle all updates for you.
  • Add descriptions components to determine which entity to render, in our example:

    • This example will render a billboard(icon) and label for each plane in the stream.
    • props
      accepts the same member options as cesium corresponding class. For example
      accepts same members as cesium Billboard.

For better understading check out the layer guide

Supported Entity types

Map Events

is a util service for managing all the map events (Click, Mouse_up...), it expose easy API for entity selection, event priority management and adds custom events (drag and drop, long press).

Usage: ```javascript @Component(...) export class SomeComponent{ constructor(private eventManager: MapEventsManagerService){

// Input about the wanted event
const eventRegistration: EventRegistrationInput = {
  event: CesiumEvent.LEFT_CLICK, // event type enum. [required!]
  modifier: CesiumEventModifier.CTRL, // event modifier enum. [optional]
  entityType: AcEntity, // raise event only if AcEntity is clicked. [optional]
  priority: 0, // event priority, default 0 . [optional]
  pick: PickOptions.PICK_FIRST // entity pick option, default PickOptions.NO_PICK. [optional]
const clickEvent = this.eventManager.register(eventRegistration).subscribe((result) => {
      // The EventResult will contain:
      // movement(screen location of the event), entities(your entities) , primitives( cesium primitives, like label,billboard...)
      console.log('map click', result.movement, 'primitives:', result.primitives, 'entities', result.entities);

} } ```

For further details check the map events guide

Map layers

With angular cesium you can define your map provider in a declarative way using

- All cesium imagery map layers are supported , defined with
according to the
enum - Pass additional configuration to
is mandatory. - Support multi map layers, map ordering and map image layer configuration. - Check out usage example from our demo here

3d Tiles


Multiple maps support

Angular Cesium supports integration of multiple maps, for more details here


Camera Keyboard Control Service

Service that manages keyboard keys and execute actions per request. Inject the keyboard control service into any layer, under your ac-map component, And defined you keyboard handlers using setKeyboardControls. ```javascript this.keyboardControlService.setKeyboardControls({ W: { action: KeyboardAction.CAMERAFORWARD }, S: { action: KeyboardAction.CAMERABACKWARD }, D: { action: KeyboardAction.CAMERARIGHT }, A: { action: KeyboardAction.CAMERALEFT }, },

#### [CameraService](
Util service that wraps cesium camera, exposes the scene's camera and screenSpaceCameraController.


Angular Cesium extends cesium api and expose additional features, but if you want to use pure cesium api you can use MapsManagerService to receive cesium viewer or any other util service that was created by ac-map.

```typescript class MyComp { constructor(mapsManagerService: MapsManagerService) const viewer = mapsManagerService.getMap().getCesiumViewer(); const mapEventManager = mapsManagerService.getMap().getMapEventsManager(); const cameraService = mapsManagerService.getMap().getCameraService(); }

manages all of the maps. The service exposes a
function that can be used to retrieve a specific map by id.


A service that is used to activate a zooming tool that enables the user to draw a rectangle over the map and zoom into the drawn rectangle

Geometry Editors And Widgets

Part of

are useful geometry editors tool: +
- for drawing circles +
- for drawing ellipses and circles +
- for drawing polylines +
- for drawing polygons +
- for drawing rectangles +
- for drawing hippodromes (path in cesium)
