Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to describe current work in specification and development of Web-based 3D standards and tools. The paper presents a Web3D application for military education and training currently in progress for the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office and the Marine Corps Combat Development Command. This paper presents current efforts in Web- based 3D technology by one key organization, the Web3D Consortium hftoHwww.web3d.ora. In a pioneering endeavor, the Web3D Consortium is working to open the Web-based 3D frontier to all by charting the territory, establishing shared goals, and building lines of communication. The paper also describes efforts of the Modeling, Virtual Environments, and Simulation MOVES Institute at the Naval Postgraduate School NPS to introduce emerging Web3D technology into the forefront of military professional education. Specific techniques, models, and scenarios are presented from the Scenario Authoring and Visualization for Advanced Graphical Environments SAVAGE project at NPS.
