16 January 2006 Dynamic conversion between XML-based languages for vector graphics
Author Affiliations +
Vector graphics is increasingly gaining importance within the Word Wide Web community, because it allows users to create images that are easily manageable, modifiable and understandable. Two formats play a leading role among the languages for vector graphics: SVG and VML. Achieving a complete interoperability between these two languages means providing users a complete support for vector images across implementations, operating systems and media. In this paper we describe VectorConverter, a tool that allows easy, automatic and reasonably good conversion between two vector graphic formats, SVG and VML, and one raster format, GIF. This tool makes good translations between languages with very different functionalities and expressivity, by applying translation rules, approximation and heuristics. A high-level discussion about implementation details, open issues and future developments of VectorConverter is provided as well.
