The Virtual Reality Modeling Language


--- VRML separator bar ---


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. See http://www.iso.ch for information on ISO and http://www.iec.ch for information on IEC.

In the field of information technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1. 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. See http://www.iso.ch/meme/JTC1.html for information on JTC 1.

International Standard ISO/IEC 14772 was prepared by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee 24, Computer graphics and image processing, in collaboration with The VRML Consortium, Inc. (http://www.vrml.org) and the VRML moderated email list (www-vrml@vrml.org).

ISO/IEC 14772 consists of the following part, under the general title Information technology -- Computer graphics and image processing -- The Virtual Reality Modeling Language:

Part 1: Functional specification and UTF-8 encoding.

Further parts will follow.

Annexes A to C form an integral part of this part of ISO/IEC 14772. Annexes D to F are for information only.
