Definitions for "Scalable Vector Graphics"
Keywords:  svg, vector, xml, dimensional, adobe
A W3C specification for a graphic format that enables two-dimensional images to be displayed in XML pages on the Web.
Is a way of using the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) to draw graphics and text, animate them, make them responsive to external events, generate new SVG, and interact with other languages and environments. In contrary to raster graphics, which are resolution dependent, vector graphics are drawn using mathematical vectors and are resolution independent. The main advantage is that vector graphics provide exceptionally good quality with drastically reduced file size. The main disadvantage is that a SVG-Viewer is required to view SVG.
