[Korea-chapter] [X3D] Korea Chapter Meeting, February 1st, 5pm PST (February 2nd, 10am KST) AR, GpsSensor, H-Anim issues

Wed Feb 1 18:42:28 PST 2012

1.  Attendees Gun Lee, Myeong Won Lee, Anita Havele, Dick Puk,
Don Brutzman.  This was another productive call.

Summary:  we discussed AR, GpsSensor, and a number of H-Anim issues.

2.  We reviewed the AR minutes of 25 JAN 2012.  Some discussion:

- The AR comparison of proposals document is available on the AR wiki at

- We discussed status of GPS Sensor.  Myeong Won Lee will work with
X3D Earth Working Group on GPS sensor proposals.  We will do that,
hopefully finding some meeting times that make sense.  We will further
bring back comments from the X3D Earth Working Group regarding what
sensor-related fields in GpsSensor might have general implications for
abstract sensor interfaces in X3D.  It will be great to have both
working groups looking at that.

3.  We discussed the good news that Suwon University has upgraded its
participation status in Web3D Consortium to Standard Membership.
We are celebrating this great progress by preparing a press release.

We then looked at H-Anim as indicated in the agenda.

H-Anim group page, working group page, and examples:


The Web3D members wiki also has several links


	Accommodating Diverse Models

	Corresponding amendment:

We talked about past work.
There has been previous work by the H-Anim working group during 2008-2009 that was not completed.
Some of it is linked on the H-Anim members wiki.

We agreed that it is a good idea to document work on these many good ideas
using the H-Anim public wiki.  Further comment is welcome about this.  The
main thing that is needed next is to get the H-Anim Working Group restarted
and rejuvenated.  To do so we need 1-2 members who are willing to voluntee
to serve as working group cochairs.

We will discuss that during next week's meeting.
