Scalable Vector Graphics

Scalable Vector Graphics provide a rich source of functionality that allow applications to manipulate and respond to the user interactions with the image. Creating and modifying SVG images is possible using one of the several open source tools available.

Batik SVG Toolkit is an impressive Java based open source SVG toolkit that provides libraries for the dynamic manipulation of SVG objects from within a Java application. While Batik provides a rich array of functionality, it somewhat lacks a good WYSIWYG editor.

A good WYSIWYG editor for SVG Graphics is provided by Inkscape which is another open source SVG editor with several advanced editing features such as (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.)
