3D Enterprise Workshop in Arlington, VA


Virginia Tech and the Web3D Consortium hosted a one-day workshop to provide presentations to Naval enterprise leaders on the use of collaborative Web-based #X3D visualization techniques by Government, Academia, and Industry practitioners. Virginia Tech's Advanced Research Computing (ARC) and Center for Geospatial Information Technology (CGIT) host with proven, innovative methods for data fusion and interactive 3D visualization.

Friday, 2019, December 6 (All day): Virginia Tech Executive Briefing Center, 900 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, VA 22203. Falls Church room.

The workshop fostered networking and showcased current and emerging capabilities for enterprise-scale, networked geo-enabled 3D communications. Increasing shared understanding and technical coordination agility can be feasibly adapted to improve digital connectedness, accelerate consensus/decision making processes across systems engineering, advance planning conceptualization, and collaborative virtual rehearsal for ashore & afloat logistics activities. Building shared priorities adds value for everyone. Workshop participants discussed their reactions "around the room" together, sharing ideas about opportunities and potential synergies that can further the art of the possible to realize shared innovation.

The workshop showcased the benefits and strengths of using the Web3D Consortium’s Extensible 3D (X3D) open 3D standards for the WWW and included:

  • Demonstrations using 3D scanners, 3D software & 3D data storage, and processing proved compelling use cases for how the X3D standard can enable new realities of collaborative 3D visualization for you 
  • Overview of Web3D Standards and their value proposition in the ecology of 3D data representations and file formats 
  • Appreciation of the long-game of technology and information systems investments: born out with this open International Standard (ISO-IEC) and WWW community, including dozens of tools, pipelines, and engines.

Presentations from the workshop are available at the link below.

The Twitter thread includes highlight points, photos, screenshots and links for everyone.
