SVG Essentials (O'Reilly XML)

by nForms on May 7, 2012

Scalable Vector Graphics -- or SVG -- is the new XML-based graphics standard from the W3C that will enable Web documents to be smaller, faster and more interactive. J. David Eisenberg's insightful book takes you through the ins and outs of SVG, beginning with basics needed to create simple line drawings and then moving through more complicated features like filters, transformations, and integration with Java, Perl, and XSLT. SVG makes it possible for designers to escape the constant need to update graphics by hand or use custom code to generate bitmap images. While SVG was created with the Web in mind, the language has a variety of other uses. SVG makes it much easier to automate graphics generation, create charts and graphics based on a wide variety of data sources, or create images that users can zoom in on and explore. Whether you're a graphic designer looking for new tools, or a programmer creating and managing graphics, SVG Essentials provides you with a solid foundation.
