[We explored several points such as this during today's Web3DUX User Experience teleconference.]

Data logging is a common prerequisite for many types of measurement and assessment.

Conventions for logging via HTML and also directly via X3D need to be considered. For example, numerous X3D sensor nodes include the ability to generate output events triggered by user navigation and interaction.  Common data formatting that identifies system parameters, event source, timestamp and data streams for a given scene can facilitate analysis.  Defining and adding a logging function to the X3D Browser object specification can enable secure recording of information.

Question: do others think that logging is important also?  Am thinking that having such a capability is important for measurable improvements in X3Dv4.

all the best, Don
