Technical illustrations are essential part of the publications process, and data exchange is a central consideration. The webinar will focus on the key graphics formats, and how they impact the process.

In the Aerospace, Defense and Automotive industries the CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile) format, is still probably the most widely used non-proprietary 2D technical illustration file. However, there is a new kid on the block, well not that new, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic), was recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in 2001.

The webinar will discuss the 3 C’s of data exchange, Conversion, Compatibility and Compliance. We will share our experiences, pro’s and con’s, and help inform a future 2D graphics strategy.
