Scaleable Vector Graphics (SVG)

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

SVG is a language that describes two-dimensional graphics in XML. In addition to images and text, SVG
allows developers to create vector graphic shapes (e.g., paths consisting of straight lines and curves). It
also lets users group, style, and transform graphical objects into previously rendered objects. The SVG
set includes nested transformations, clipping paths, alpha masks, filter effects, template objects, and
extensibility. SVG drawings can be dynamic and interactive with support for vector graphics animation via
scripting. Due to its compatibility with a number of Web standards, SVG can create dynamic graphical
Web pages and interfaces that are interoperable with other XML-based DOMs.
There are also scaled-down versions of SVG designed form mobile phones and PDAs.
