SVG is an abbreviation for Scalable Vector Graphics. Yes, it’s a vector, so the images do not lose their quality. The other important feature is the format is two-dimensional. Therefore symbols and maps on the abovementioned Wikipedia are usually in SVG: clear quality and simplicity are combined. But the most precious thing about this format is its great possibility of being animated.
