Scalable Vector Graphics
What is SVG?

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a graphics file format and Web development language based on XML. SVG enables Web developers and designers to create dynamically generated, high-quality graphics from real-time data with precise structural and visual control.
With this powerful new technology, SVG developers can create a new generation of Web applications based on data-driven, interactive, and personalized graphics.

Because it is written in XML, SVG content can be linked to back-end business processes such as e-commerce systems, corporate databases, and other rich sources of real-time information.

Create Web-based applications, tools or sophisticated user interfaces with common Web scripting and programming languages such as JavaScript, Java, and Microsoft Visual Basic.

SVG content can be customized and tailored for many audiences, cultures, and demographic groups. Non-Roman and other unusual fonts and typefaces may be embedded in an SVG document. SVG can also be dynamically generated using information gathered from databases or real-time user interaction.
