As Chapter 2, "Overview of Web3D," explains in great detail, Web3D is a general term used to describe protocols, languages, file formats, and other technologies that are used to deliver true, interactive 3D content over the World Wide Web. More specifically, Web3D is a group of standard technologies recommended by the Web3D Consortium for use in delivering 3D content over the Internet.
