Cesium to Visualise NYC Carbon Footprint

Cesiumjs is a wonderfully simple and extensible library to work with. It is, in simplest terms, a 3D globe with imagery providers which can be used for nearly anything under the sun. I recently discovered that NYC publishes a lot of its data online, and I was dying to play around with that data to see what I could gather from the city data. I also had Cesium on hand, and open city data coupled with a versatile visualisation tool is a killer combination so I gave myself a few hours last Saturday afternoon to see what I could do.
