Wikipedia:SVG – Scalable Vector Graphics. Images that consist of lines and shapes and text and fonts, and not pixels. They look the same, but vector graphics can be scaled effortlessly, and could potentially be rearranged without necessarily loosing any information.
I recommend InkScape to edit SVG files. Inkscape used to crash often, but these days I’m very happy with it.
I have a problem with Inkscape and I think it’s related to the handling or loss of CSS information. I have a script that creates an SVG map which looks fine in Firefox – check it out and hit the submit button.
When I import that SVG into another SVG in order to add more layers, everything looks more or less ok. One thing that’s already wrong is that the hex coordinates are missing. When I save the file, close Inkscape, open Inkscape again, and reopen the new file, things are messed up:
Do you think Inkscape will have an easier time handling the SVG if I don’t use CSS to specificy stroke width, opacity, and the like?
I’m using Inkscape 0.46 at the moment.
There is an amazing Traveller Map API available out there. Specifically, there’s a service that will produce a PDF based on your UWP list. But you know how it is. I bet half the Traveller referees are trying to code up subsector generators and mappers. Me too!
Here’s my SVG Mapper for Traveller. It comes with example data so you can figure out what format it expects by looking at it. Just klick the Submit button! Remember, you need a browser that knows how to deal with SVG files – Firefox will do.
There was a lot of talk about corporate wikis, measuring corporate wiki participation, and some wikis “competing” for use in the corporate area.
Oddmuse is definitely not a “corporate wiki” in this respect. I think the problem is the process of decision making: Someone starts with a list of features and goes to collect more items for that list by talking to other “stakeholders” in the company. This is what you end up with:
Yeah, I’m being mean.
Damn, I forgot WYSIWYG, blog integration, CMS, mailing list integration, bug tracking system integration, calendar integration, … there’s so much out there!
