Vector graphics.
Vector graphics are images that use 2D points to describe lines and curves and their properties that are grouped to form geometric shapes. Vector graphics can be designed using computer aided design (CAD) software or using an application which uses a drawing canvas on the screen. See Figure 1.4.

A vector graphic will contain a drawing list (included in a file header) that is made up of
» the command used for each object that makes up the graphic image » the attributes that define the properties that make up each object (for example consider the ellipse of the robot's mouth - this will need the position of the two centres, the radius from centres, the thickness and style of each line, the line colour and any fill colour used)
» the relative position of each object will also need to be included » the dimensions of each object are not defined, but the relative positions of objects to each other in the final graphic need to be defined; this means that scaling up the vector graphic image will result in no loss of quality.
