VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language)

VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is a language for describing three-dimensional ( 3-D ) image sequences and possible user interactions to go with them. Using VRML, you can build a sequence of visual images into Web settings with which a user can interact by viewing, moving, rotating, and otherwise interacting with an apparently 3-D scene. For example, you can view a room and use controls to move the room as you would experience it if you were walking through it in real space.

To view a VRML file, you need a VRML viewer or browser, which can be a plug-in for a Web browser you already have. Among viewers you can download for the Windows platforms are blaxxun's CC Pro, Platinum's Cosmo Player, WebFX, WorldView, and Fountain. Whurlwind and Voyager are two viewers for the Mac.
