  • New ways to find Scalable Vector Graphic files: SVGs describe how to draw the basic elements needed to create an image: elements like lines, circles, polygons and more complex shapes. Unlike the images typically returned by most search engines, SVGs can be stretched to any size without the quality of the image suffering. This makes them ideally suited for things like clip art, maps, logos, flags and scientific diagrams. Google now made it possible to refine your search results to exclusively return SVGs.
