Svgweb - Scalable Vector Graphics for Web Browsers using Flash

Svgweb - Scalable Vector Graphics for Web Browsers using Flash
Overview SVG Web is a JavaScript library which provides SVG support on many browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. Using the library plus native SVG support you can instantly target ~95% of the existing installed web base. Once dropped in you get partial support for SVG 1.1, SVG Animation (SMIL), Fonts, Video and Audio, DOM and style scripting through JavaScript, and more in a small library. This project is currently in Beta stage development. It should also be noted that while Google has contributed to this project, Google is not providing support for this project. One Minute Intro Demos More demos can be seen with the demo viewer; keep in mind that not all of the demos in the demo viewer work. Getting Started A Quick Start guide is available to get going fast. Also, if you are using SVG Web in your own project please add yourself to the ProjectsUsingSVGWeb page! Videos What's New February 3rd, 2011: New Release! A new SVG Web release is out, code named Lurker Above. Related:  GeoVis ToolsWeb Design

Javascript and SVG: Back to the Future Happy New Year! One of the things I am looking forward to in 2012 is yet more improvements in the no-longer-humble web browser. The move towards ‘web apps’ has made browser manufacturers focus on the speed at which users can interact with a page (usually this is done via javascript). This has brought with it remarkable improvements to the usability of complex, interactive data graphics. One of the reasons Flash has been so popular in recent years has been its better performance when dealing with complex animated/interactive content. Here at ONS’ Data Visualisation Centre, we loved SVG a decade ago – so we’re really looking forward to re-working some of our existing Flash-based graphics back towards HTML5/SVG in the coming year – I’ll try and reflect on some of the experiences of doing this in a later post.

Le format SVG Images vectorielles et images bitmap Il existe 2 manières de représenter des images dans un ordinateur. Les images bitmap [3] sont construites à partir d’une matrice de points, on affecte une couleur à chaque point. Les images vectorielles consistent en un assemblage d’objets géométriques élémentaires (points, lignes, cercles) à l’intérieur d’un repère du plan (mais si, souvenez-vous les cours de maths au collège…). Parmi les formats d’images les plus connus, on trouve PNG [4] , JPEG [5] et TIFF [6] qui sont des formats bitmap. Un standard du W3C Tout comme XHTML [7], CSS [8] ou encore MathML [9], SVG est un standard du W3C [10]. Vous avez dit XML ? XML est un métalangage en ce sens qu’il sert de base pour l’élaboration d’autres langages comme OpenDocument, XUL [13] (le langage de description d’interfaces de Mozilla) ou encore XMPP [14] (utilisé notamment pour la messagerie instantanée et plus connu sous le nom de Jabber [15]).

Batik SVG Toolkit Overview Batik is a Java-based toolkit for applications or applets that want to use images in the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format for various purposes, such as display, generation or manipulation. The project’s ambition is to give developers a set of core modules that can be used together or individually to support specific SVG solutions. Examples of modules are the SVG Parser, the SVG Generator and the SVG DOM. What Batik can be used for With Batik, you can manipulate SVG documents anywhere Java is available. Batik makes it easy for Java based applications or applets to deal with SVG content. The Batik toolkit includes the following: Modules Tools and applications See examples of projects and products using Batik for real-life example of how Batik is already integrated in projects and products. The SVG specification Scalable Vector Graphics, SVG, is a W3C Recommendation. The SVG specification states: This specification defines the features and syntax for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).

HTML5 Presentations To Help You Get Started with HTML 5 HTML5 is next revision of HTML and is already support in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and even IE (if you use Chrome Frame). Here’s a list of presentations, videos and web articles to help you get started with HTML 5. HTML5 is next major version of HTML and, though it is still a "work in progress", some of the new HTML5 specific tags are already natively supported in the latest builds of all popular browsers including Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera. Internet Explorer users can download Chrome Frame for IE to experience the new HTML 5 elements without switching browsers. HTML5 will not only make it easier for developers to write web apps that utilize offline storage or make use of the visitor’s geographic location, it has something interesting to offer for non-developers as well. [*] You can play YouTube video without the Flash Player. If you are curious to know more about HTML 5, here are links to some presentations, video recordings and web article that you may find useful.

Polymaps Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) SVG is a widely-deployed royalty-free graphics format developed and maintained by the W3C SVG Working Group. This is a public group, which works on an open mailing list and which welcomes your feedback. Upcoming Events The Graphical Web 2014 – Winchester, England, August 27–30, 2014 The Graphical Web will showcase SVG, as well as related technologies like Canvas, WebGL, CSS, Javascript, and HTML5 video and audio. News CSS-SVG Effects Task Force Started The CSS and SVG Working groups have started a joint task force to discuss and develop mutual features such as gradients, transforms, filters, and animation.

Cascading Style Sheets, level 1 W3C Recommendation 17 Dec 1996, revised 11 Apr 2008 Note: This paragraph is informative. This document is currently not maintained. Status of this document This document is a W3C Recommendation. A list of current W3C Recommendations and other technical documents can be found at This document is a revised version of the document first released on 17 December 1996. Abstract This document specifies level 1 of the Cascading Style Sheet mechanism (CSS1). One of the fundamental features of CSS is that style sheets cascade; authors can attach a preferred style sheet, while the reader may have a personal style sheet to adjust for human or technological handicaps. This Recommendation results from W3C activities in the area of Style Sheets.

Différence entre les images matricielles et vectorielles. Les images vectorielles peuvent être agrandies à l’infini. Le Scalable Vector Graphics (en français « graphique vectoriel adaptable[1] »), ou SVG, est un format de données conçu pour décrire des ensembles de graphiques vectoriels et basé sur XML. Ce format inspiré directement du VML et du PGML est spécifié par le World Wide Web Consortium. Historique[modifier | modifier le code] SVG a été développé à partir de 1999 par un groupe de sociétés au sein du W3C après la mise en concurrence des propositions Precision Graphics Markup Language (PGML) proposé par Adobe à partir de PostScript et Vector Markup Language (VML) proposé par Microsoft à partir de Rich Text Format (RTF). En septembre 2001, le W3C publie la Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.0 Specification, W3C Recommendation[3]. Depuis, le travail se continue sur la version 2[5].

Layouts HTML layout is very basic. Not many options exist with the body tag alone. Tables, on the other hand, are the bread and butter of HTML layouts. HTML Code: <table id="shell" bgcolor="black" border="1" height="200" width="300"><tr><td><table id="inner" bgcolor="white" height="100" width="100"><tr><td>Tables inside tables! Tables inside tables: The white table (identified as inner) exists inside of the (shell) table, the black one. A fairly standard layout consists of a banner near the top, navigation, and your content or display box. <table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" bgcolor="black" id="shell" height="250" width="400"><tr height="50"><td colspan="2" bgcolor="white"><table title="Banner" id="banner" border="0"><tr><td>Place a banner here</td></tr></table></td></tr><tr height="200"><td bgcolor="white"><table id="navigation" title="Navigation" border="0"><tr><td>Links! Basic Layout: This approach is basic, yet organized. Basic Layout 2: SVG Wow!
