Web3D Consortium Awards Professional Memberships to Community Contributors
The Web3D Consortium members work closely with community participants to advance 3D Graphics on the Web. The Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics International Standard has always been spurred forward by volunteer contributions and broad public review.
Important initiatives often emerge from the Projects Wish List which provides advice about specific ways to get involved. There are many interesting projects with potentially broad impact that are looking for energetic developers.
Recognizing the critical role that individuals can play in building the 3D Web, two Web professionals have made especially important impacts.
X3D graphics is quite adaptable. Another professional also builds 3D on the Web using the same stable technology.
Andreas Plesch has made multiple contributions to the open-source X3DOM player, especially supporting efforts of the X3D Geospatial Working Group. He has proposed important new capabilities for X3D version 4 and is currently investigating addition of general support for geospatial reference frames.
Web3D Professional Membership provides a number of valuable benefits. Highlights include:
- Member Access: great opportunities to network and collaborate with leading Web3D experts.
- Working Group Participation: X3D, CAD, Geospatial, Cultural and Natural Heritage, Humanoid Animation (H-Anim), Medical Visualization, and Mixed Augmented Reality (MAR).
- Opportunities for Consortium Leadership: Board of Directors (BoD) annual elections include community representatives.
Web3D Consortium members are proud to recognize John and Andreas for their important and ongoing contributions. Please join us in congratulating them on their many achievements!
