Over the last few years, I’ve been doing a bit of work with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG for short). As its name states, SVG is a vector graphics format. The difference is that it’s based on XML. I find SVG both useful and intriguing; a future blog post will explain why.
What I’ve been doing hasn’t been too complex, mainly diagrams. And I’ve been working with a number of Open Source graphics applications that use SVG as their native format. Guess what? Working with an SVG-based editor just like using any other vector graphics editor.
Below are some good sources of information about SVG:
- World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) SVG page
- SVG Print, at the W3C site
- SVG Mobile, at the W3C site
- Adobe’s Scalable Vector Graphics zone
- svg.org wiki
- W3Schools SVG tutorial
