Definitions for vector graphics
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word vector graphics
Random House Webster's College Dictionary
a method of electronically coding graphic images so that they are represented in lines rather than fixed bit maps, allowing an image, as on a computer display screen, to be rotated or proportionally scaled.
the use of geometrical primitives based upon mathematical equations to represent images in computer graphics, contrasted with raster graphics.
Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon, which are all based on mathematical expressions, to represent images in computer graphics. "Vector", in this context, implies more than a straight line toward align. Vector graphics are based on vectors which lead through locations called control points. Each of these points has a definite position on the x and y axes of the work plan. Each point, as well, is a variety of database, including the location of the point in the work space and the direction of the vector. Each track can be assigned a color, a shape, a thickness and also a fill. This does not affect the size of the files in a substantial way because all information resides in the structure; it describes how to draw the vector.
