VisANT XML to SVG Converter, v1.00a
Last Update: Wed, Mar 8, 2006

This tool converts VisANT XML files ("VisML", .xml) to scalable vector graphic (SVG) files. Use this as a high-resolution alternative to the built-in graphics output of VisANT. To view SVG files, you'll need the latest version of the Adobe SVG Viewer Plug-in. SVG files can be converted to other rasterized image formats (.tif, .gif, .jpg, .png) by a number of free and commercial vector drawing applications (Illustrator, Corel Draw, Inkscape).
