Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML)

Definition - What does Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) mean?

Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) is an open-standard programming language created to design three-dimensional (3-D) and Web-based models, textures and illusion.

VRML is used to illustrate 3-D objects, buildings, landscapes or other items requiring 3-D structure and is very similar to Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). VRML also uses textual representation to define 3-D illusion presentation methods.

VRML is also known as Virtual Reality Markup Language.

Techopedia explains Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML)

VRML is a popular open standard tool for developing 3-D animations, illusions, characters and most full-scale graphical Web application representations. VRML uses text to define 3-D credentials, i.e., 3-D item coordinates and geometric values are specified and transformed into the original illusion or image.

VRML was an open standard that provided easy adaptability and thus was used primarily for education and experimentation. VRML was used to design virtual Web-accessible worlds but did not easily integrate with HTML, which led to the eventual X3D replacement.
