Look here:

SVG is brilliant and it's all XML

fractal vibes.. can you tell me more about this - i didnt find the adobe site a bit confusing..

how do you make these data driven images?

what i need is a floorplan image that can be updated easily by a client - do these data driven images use .txt files or something? any good articles on XML? what is that?

thanks, help please! i havent got long :)!

SVG is nothing more than a flavor of XML. Here is a decent WSIWIG
tool for a fast start:

and here is an excellent starting point for learning about SVG and how to manipulate using javascript:

wait! just a few questions

im looking into this becuase i need to make a floorplan you know what i mean?

like a birds eye view of a building so you can see all the rooms.

What i need is something like this: http://www.chemspeceurope.com/gen2.shtml except this one is in flash. is a similar thing possible using XML and SVG?

i need it to be updatable so can you use asp?

help would be appriciated! thanks!

I think building a static version would not be too hard. building a dynamic one
would be non-trivial. You'd basically have to generate the SVG on the fly, probably from a template page of sorts.

Could get pretty complex

ok so what about the zoom in and out function on that page?

is that impossible? and when you mouseover the rooms the info that comes with it.?

thanks

Not sure what you mean by the zoom in and zoom out functions. Typically you can zoom in and zoom out on a SVG with a right click. ANd SVG does require the Adobe plugin to render in the browser.

The mouseovers - you would write javascript functions to do that. Could get
fairly complex, even the static version.

Spend some time here:

After that, go here:
http://www.informit.com/articles/index.asp?st=41557
and search for SVG - you will find some articles.

As I said, what you are looking at is a non-trivial application, and will take a good bit of time to learn/accomplish.
