To me it seems somewhat dirty that CesiumJS (a 3d map displaying library) is being advertised as open source platform

Yes the frontend library is Apache 2.0 licenced, but in order to use it you have to use their proprietrary backend

And the sad thing is that there doesn't seem to exist any truly libre or open source alternative for 3d mesh/map publishing

I'm happy to support good project monetarily, but not 149$/month for a hobby project with strict limits how I am allowed to use the service
