Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

XML markup language for describing two-dimensional vector graphics, both static and animated, and either declarative or scripted. Images can contain hyperlinks using outbound simple XLinks. It is an open standard created by the World Wide Web Consortium.

SVG allows three types of graphic objects:

  • Vector graphic shapes (e.g., paths consisting of straight lines and curves, and areas bounded by them)
  • Raster graphics images / digital images
  • Text

Graphical objects can be grouped, styled, transformed and composited into previously rendered objects. Text can be in any XML namespace suitable to the application, which enhances searchability and accessibility of the SVG graphics. The feature set includes nested transformations, clipping paths, alpha masks, filter effects, template objects and extensibility. (from Wikipedia)
