Scalable vector graphics(SVG), has been widely popular currently in terms of rendering web graphics. When compared with Raster images, Vector images (SVG image types) have the following advantages.
- As the name implies Vector SVG graphics are scaleable and do not pixelate at higher zoom levels.
- Vector graphics are formed using basic shapes, mathematical paths and lines. Because of this it is easier to understand sub parts that make up the vector image.
- SVG files are XML files therefore customizing them and making changes is easier than manipulating binary raster images.
