Abstract:GeoVRML techniques have the potential to provide functional and transparent communication between geographical information and 3D Web visualization tools. This report outlines recommended practices and modifications to the VRML97 standard to consider pre-existing cartographic projections and georeferenced data. The concepts outlined for incorporating georeferenced coordinate systems in VRML worlds have generic applicability to 3D Web technologies like MPEG-4, Java3D and Chrome.
