SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)

Scalable Vector Graphics, or SVG, is a file format for displaying scalable vector graphics on the web. Vector graphics store images, shapes, lines, and colors using mathematical equations based on grid points, not pixel-based raster images such as JPEG and PNG files. The nature of SVG files allows web designers to resize them without any loss in quality, making them resolution-independent and suitable for adapting graphics to any screen size.

For example, an SVG image retains its quality on both a 42-inch computer monitor and an 11-inch graphic tablet, ensuring a crisp and consistent visual experience for all site visitors regardless of the device they use or their screen size.
