To get started, you will first need to create a free Cesium ion account and install STK 12.0.1 (or a newer version). Once you have these prerequisites, you can add the data to your Cesium ion account and generate an access token for STK. You can find complete instructions for linking STK to your free Cesium ion account here.
These times can then be used to constrain the times when platforms are able to communicate. In the video below you will see an aircraft flying through False Creek and then over the city of Vancouver, BC. During this flight you will see when the aircraft can access the facility on the hill, through the buildings.
