What are they actually providing? 3D meshes of earth tiles? In that case, it should be doable...I guess...

as i understand, they provides storage of data of many formats, and internet data streaming. they natively support java script, web gl, c++. it's convenient for website developers to put 3D images into their sites. and games can make use of it too.
i think heightmap data is one of the data types. 3d models like buildings are stored as varies formats.
www.geo-fs.com is an example of the usage of Cesium.
but java is not natively supported.

https://www.cesium.com/why-cesium/3d-tiles/ seems like they use .glTF 3D Objects.
I have used these in the past and converted them to .obj extension using Blender.
I suppose there might be some Java library that can do read-out/convert these .glTF files as well.

Seems like a difficult thing to implement, but doable ;)
