Graphics are used for everything from enhancing the appearance of Web pages to serving as the presentation and user interaction layer for full-fledged Web Applications.
Different use cases for graphics demand different solutions, thus there are several different technologies available. Photographs are best represented with PNG, while interactive line art, data visualization, and even user interfaces need the power of SVG and the Canvas API. CSS exists to enhance other formats like HTML or SVG. WebCGM meets the needs for technical illustration and documentation in many industries.
