Interactive WhiteBoard/ Common File Format v1.0 Specification Released

Unattributed, CEN WS-LT LTSO, Mar 30, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The specifications community keeps on making specifications. I'm not sure there was a need for a special specification to describe whiteboard contents, but now we have one. I looked into the specifics and the XML file describes basically what you would expect to see in a visual display - layers, shapes, text elements and media. See the full specification here. "The format uses the Scalar Vector Graphic format (SVG) to represent much of the content, with additional attributes outside of the SVG specification being added as IWB specific tags. Much of the SVG parts have been simplified from the full specification to make the IWB format simpler to implement."
