Information on SVF (Simple Vector Format)

The Simple Vector Format, or SVF, is a vector graphics format which supports hyperlinks and layer information. It was jointly developed by SoftSource and NCSA to provide a useful 2-D vector format for use on the World Wide Web. The specification is freely available for anyone to use. (Note: Copies of any of the specification of SVF must retain the SoftSource copyright notice.)


To view SVF images, you can use the SoftSource SVF Plug-In for Netscape. This plug-in allows you to embed SVF images in HTML documents and view stand-alone SVF files through Netscape. If you have a browser which supports SVF or the Netscape plug-in, you can look at the SVF test page to try out some of the features of SVF.
