Open Source Vector

  1. Open source vector graphics
    The open source Xara Xtreme project -- which is building a commercial-standard vector graphics program -- has reached a 0.5 version status with Xara LX for Linux. All tools are fully functional, and users can now save and export files as bitmaps, according to the project team.
    While work remains to bring the program up to the polish of the commercial Xara Xtreme, the Xara team estimates it is more than halfway to an official 1.0 release. An example of a commercial-standard vector graphics program is Adobe Illustrator. The features deemed most critical to the 0.5 milestone were "save" and "export" of designs as bitmaps, according to the project. 
      
  2. Open source graphics software
    At the end of 2005 we announced our intention to Open Source our flagship graphics software, Xara Xtreme, and bring it to both the Linux and Mac platforms. The news went down a storm and progress has been fast so we're now able to announce the first source code releases for Linux which you can download and build now. Xara Xtreme is the world's fastest and, we believe, most versatile graphics software. It is primarily a vector graphics program, but is one of the new generation of cross-over products that handles photos and drawings with equal ease. Xara Xtreme is also renowned for its slick, easy-to-use and easy-to-learn approach. Xara Xtreme remains the most powerful (in terms of performance) and the most productive product available - these are objective measures and not just marketing spiel. 
      
  3. Scalable Vector Graphics open source
    SVG is a language for describing two-dimensional graphics and graphical applications in XML. SVG 1.1 is a W3C Recommendation and forms the core of the current SVG developments. SVG 1.2 is the specification currently being developed as is available in draft form (comments welcome). The SVG Mobile Profiles: SVG Basic and SVG Tiny are targetted to resource-limited devices and are part of the 3GPP platform for third generation mobile phones. SVG Print is a set of guidelines to produce final-form documents in XML suitible for archiving and printing. sXBL is a binding language for SVG content. SVG builds upon many other successful standards such as XML (SVG graphics are text-based and thus easy to create), JPEG and PNG for image formats, DOM for scripting and interactivity, SMIL for animation and CSS for styling. SVG is interoperable. The W3C release a test suite and implementation results to ensure conformance. 

  4. Xara - Open Source Vector Graphics App
    After only nine weeks of operation, the open source Xara Xtreme project - which is building a commercial-standard vector graphics program
    has reached a 0.5 version status with Xara LX for Linux. All tools are fully functional, and users can now save and export files as bitmaps, according to the project team. The features deemed most critical to the 0.5 milestone were "save" and "export" of designs as bitmaps, according to the project, as well as additional features also reached completion While work remains to bring the program up to the polish of the commercial Xara Xtreme, the Xara team estimates it is more than halfway to an official 1.0 release. An example of a commercial-
    standard vector graphics program is Adobe Illustrator. Linux needs a top-tier commercial-standard graphics program," the team wrote in the release announcement.
      
  5. Open Source Vector Drawing Applications
    There are a few applications that tie me to having a MicroSoft Windows workstation. One of those is Corel Draw, the vector drawing application. I may be tied down for a while yet, but open source vector drawing applications are starting to appear. Two that I?ve seen are ?Sodipodi? and ?Inkscape?. Of the two, Inkscape seems the better developed at the moment. I?ve been a user of Corel Draw since version 0.98. I illustrated a book, Daniel S. Levine?s Introduction to Neural and Cognitive Modeling using CD v0.98 and v1.0 on IBM PC class machines. Inkscape in its current version offers everything I would have needed for that job. There are things that Corel Draw does now that I probably don?t want to do without. The ability to use node edits to crop imported bitmaps is one.
       
  6. InkScape: Open Source Vector Graphics
    InkScape is an Open Source scaleable vector graphics (SVG) editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the W3C standard SVG file format. InkScape supports standard SVG features include shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, patterns, and grouping.nkScape also supports Creative Commons meta-data, node editing, layers, complex path operations, bitmap tracing, text-on-path, flowed text, direct XML editing, and more. It imports formats such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and others and exports PNG as well as multiple vector-based formats.
     
  7. Vector graphics
    Vector graphics or geometric modeling is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and polygons to represent images in computer graphics. It is used by contrast to the term raster graphics, which is the representation of images as a collection of pixels (dots). The human eye works as a bitmap picture: it catches the image in a mosaic raster of photon recipient nerves, a pixel image. But the brain according to recent studies[citation needed] -handles it as a vector image. Perhaps because - like in computers -this is easier to store. It explains why humans can recognize simple drawings like cartoons with just outlines because this is so close to what the human brain makes of the visual world anyway.
