Information technology - Computer graphics and image processing - The Virtual Reality Modeling Language - Part 1: Functional specification and UTF-8 encoding

This standard, the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML), defines a file format that integrates 3D graphics and multimedia. Conceptually, each VRML file is a 3D time-based space that contains graphic and aural objects that can be dynamically modified through a variety of mechanisms. This part defines a primary set of objects and mechanisms that encourage composition, encapsulation, and extension. The semantics of VRML describe an abstract functional behaviour of time-based, interactive 3D, multimedia information. This standard does not define physical devices or any other implementation-dependent concepts (e.g., screen resolution and input devices). This standard is intended for a wide variety of devices and applications, and provides wide latitude in interpretation and implementation of the functionality. For example, this standard does not assume the existence of a mouse or 2D display device.
