What does 3DML mean?
- 3D Markup Language; a set of tags and rules used to develop three dimensional representations of documents to be presented on the World Wide Web, allowing incorporation of text, graphics, sound, video, and hyperlinks. Internet browsers read 3DML through a plugin known as Rover to know what they should display.
3DML is a format for creating three-dimensional websites build up by combining similar sized building blocks. It was invented in 1997 by Michael Powers and developed further by the Flatland team over the next four years. The 3DML block format has been popularized more recently in the blockbuster game called Minecraft. 3DML files are written in an XML syntax which can be delivered from standard web servers and shown within a browser plugin and independent 3DML browser called Flatland Rover. The last update was posted in spring 2005. There is only a plugin for Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator and AOL, but not for Mozilla Firefox.
