About Web3D Consortium

The Web3D Consortium provides a forum for the creation of open standards for Web3D specifications, and accelerates the worldwide demand for products based on these standards through the sponsorship of market and user education programs.

Today, the Web3D Consortium is utilizing its broad-based industry support to develop the the X3D specification, for communicating 3D on the web, between applications and across distributed networks and web services. The Web3D Consortium builds and maintains standards through well-coordinated efforts with Internation Standards Organization (ISO), Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
