is vector format?
graphics are images that are completely described using mathematical
definitions. Each individual line is made up of either a vast
collection of points with lines interconnecting all of them
or just a few control points. Vector drawings are usually pretty
small files because they only contain data about control points.
Vector drawings can usually be scaled without any loss in quality.
This makes them ideal for company logo's, maps or other objects
that have to be resized frequently. CAD (Computer Aided Design)
programs generate image files in vector format ( for example
DXF, DWG, DWF ).
is raster format?
name for raster format is "Bitmap". Bitmap images
are exactly what their name implies: a collection of bits that
form an image. The image consists of a matrix of individual
dots (or pixels), each with its own color, which is defined
using bits, the smallest unit of information on a computer.
Most image-painting programs generate files in raster format
(for example BMP, JPG, PNG).
