CS 490 - WebOOGL module for IBM's Data Explorer
WebOOGL began as a contender for VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language). VRML is a proposed standard for 3D data on the Web. However, SGI's Open Inventor file format was recently chosen as the VRML standard for the web. There will be filters created for converting WebOOGL to VRML 1.0 and back. They will be designed by the people at the University of Minnesota's Geometry Center.
The goal of our project is to allow users of IBM's Data Explorer (DX), the ability to post their images on the web using WebOOGL. From there, anyone can manipulate the objects in 3D space (e.g. rotation, translation, zooming) using an application called Geomview, which is a public domain 3D viewer for SGI, X, and NextStep systems. This project is under the supervision of Professor Bruce Land for CS 490.
