  • On 01 March 2010, WebCGM 2.1 was simultaneously published as an OASIS Standard and W3C Recommendation.
  • A corresponding updated version of the WebCGM 2.1 Test Suite was released shortly thereafter.


The WebCGM TC is a technical committee within the OASIS CGM Open Member Section.

The purpose of the OASIS CGM Open WebCGM TC is to accelerate the further adoption, application, and implementation of the Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM), the international standard for open interchange of structured graphical objects and their associated attributes. The WebCGM profile of CGM was developed by CGM Open and is both an OASIS Standard and a technically identical W3C Recommendation. WebCGM is focused on presenting dynamic technical graphics in the web environment.
