Vector graphics are computer graphics images that are defined in terms of 2D points, which are connected by lines and curves to form polygons and other shapes.[1] Each of these points has a definite position on the x- and y-axis of the work plane and determines the direction of the path; further, each path may have various properties including values for stroke color, shape, curve, thickness, and fill.[2][3] Vector graphics are commonly found today in the SVGEPS and PDF graphic file formats and are intrinsically different from the more common raster graphics file formats of JPEGPNGAPNGGIF, and MPEG4.
