The former director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Robert Cardillo joined  the advisory board of Cesium, a platform created to stream, visualize, and analyze 3D geospatial data.

“Robert has unique knowledge of the needs and challenges of the intelligence and defense space along with a deep understanding of geospatial technology.
