Rendering Order Optimization for SVGStat Improvement
Vector representation of digital images offers a number of advantages over the more common raster represen- tation, such as scalability and resolution independence. Many efforts have been made to deploy scalable raster standards for photographic imagery addressed to portable applications. However, they lack the flessibility and simplicity of vector representation. Vector graphics is a new and little explored alternative to the more common representation. In this paper we present our raster to vector technique, called SVGStat, improved with a new boundaries simplification algorithm.
