“SVG eliminates designers’ constant need to update graphics by hand or use custom code to generate bitmap images. And while SVG was created with the Web in mind, the language has a variety of other uses. SVG greatly simplifies such tasks as:
- Creating web sites whose graphics reflect the content of the page, changing automatically if the content changes.
- Generating graphics and charts from information stored in a wide variety of sources.
- Exchanging detailed drawings, from architectural plans to CAD layouts to project-management diagrams
By focusing closely on the markup at the foundation of SVG, SVG Essentials gives you a solid base upon which to create your own custom tools. Explanations of key technical tools—such as XML, matrix math, and scripting—are included as appendixes, along with a reference to the SVG vocabulary.
Whether you are a graphics designer in search of new tools or a programmer dealing with the complex task of creating and managing graphics, SVG Essentials provides you with the means to take advantage of SVG.—from the back cover
