X3D Ontology for Semantic Web Query of 3D Models and Metadata
Abstract. Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics is the royalty-free open standard for publishing, viewing, printing and archiving interactive 3D models on the Web. The X3D Ontology for Semantic Web provides terms of reference for semantic query of X3D models. Results produced by the X3D Semantic Web Working Group mission are now publishing a broad variety of models and metadata to the Web. Using the X3D Ontology provides an effective way to best gain Web interoperability and enable intelligent 3D applications, feature-based 3D model querying, and reasoning over 3D scenes.
Our primary site is X3D Ontology for Semantic Web which includes all assets. There is no slideset for this talk, rather we discuss broad motivating design criteria, then walk through example conversions and queries in detail.
Feedback, insights and suggestions are welcome as we unlock this new domain for X3D which is expected to have broad applicability. All questions are also welcome, since:
