About

Scope

The current area of work for JTC 1/SC 24 consists of: Standardization of interfaces for information technology based applications relating to:

  • computer graphics and virtual reality,
  • image processing,
  • environmental data representation,
  • support for Mixed and Augmented Reality (MAR), and
  • interaction with, and visual presentation of, information
Included are the following related areas: Modeling and simulation, related reference models; virtual reality with accompanying augmented reality/augmented virtuality aspects, related reference models; application program interfaces; functional specifications; representation models; interchange formats, encodings and their specifications, including metafiles; device interfaces; testing methods; registration procedures; presentation and support for creation of multimedia, hypermedia, and mixed reality documents.

Excluded: Character and image coding; coding of multimedia, hypermedia, and mixed reality document interchange formats; JTC 1 work in user system interfaces and document presentation; ISO TC 207 work on ISO 14000 environment management, ISO TC 211 work on geographic information and geomatics; and software environments as described by JTC 1/SC 22.
