Vector graphics

Vector graphics,

Definition of Vector graphics:

  1. Computer graphics (such as drawings, but not pictures) that, unlike raster graphics, are represented as geometric shapes by mathematical equations. Vector graphics are generated by illustration software such as Adobe Illustrator or QuarkXpress can be scaled, rotated, moved, or otherwise manipulated to any degree without any loss of quality, and display or print at whatever resolution is available on a monitor or printer. Also called object based graphics or object oriented graphics.

Meaning of Vector graphics & Vector graphics Definition

Vector Graphics

Images are presented and stored on computers using geometric elements such as points, lines, curves and shapes. Unlike raster images, vector images can be easily scaled without loss of clarity because all points used in image rendering have a well-defined position and shape in two-dimensional space.

For example, if a line is drawn with vector graphics, only the two end points and the fact that the line is a straight line must be preserved. To double the length of a line, all you need to do is change the information in one endpoint so that the program can fill in all the intermediate points. In the case of a bitmap image, the size of each pixel should be doubled, making the image more blurry. (The software does not know what a line is and stores information about each pixel that makes up the line separately.)
