Extensible 3D (X3D)
Part 1: Architecture and base components
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission) form a specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.
International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.
The main task of the joint technical committee is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards adopted by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75% of the national bodies casting a vote.
ISO/IEC 19775-1 was prepared by Joint Technical Committee
ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee 24, Computer graphics, image processing
and environmental data representation, in collaboration with The Web3D Consortium, Inc. (
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, which has been technically revised.
ISO/IEC 19775 consists of the following parts, under the general title Information technology — Computer graphics, image processing and environmental data representation — Extensible 3D (X3D):
Part 1: Architecture and base components (this part)
Part 2: Scene access interface
