Developer's Description

PDFTron's PDF2SVG is an efficient, stand-alone command-line application that enables users to convert and publish PDF documents as SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), the open-standard W3C recommendation for high-end graphics on the web.

PDF2SVG enables high-quality conversion from PDF to SVG that maintains the original layout of the document and preserves hyperlinks, colors and fonts. The resulting self-contained and compact SVG files can be distributed, viewed, edited, stored, printed, and published onto web sites and CD-ROMs. For quick and easy document navigation and viewing, PDF2SVG can be configured to create page thumbnails as well as an XML summary describing the document components such as metadata, bookmarks, annotations, etc. Using XSLT or any other XML processor, the user can quickly generate custom HTML and JavaScript �¢â?¬�?wrappers' that enable the user to browse multi-page documents in any web browser.

Like other PDFTron products, PDF2SVG does not rely on any other third-party software.

PDF2SVG is also available as a software component for embedding into third-party applications. Please see the developers site, linked above, for more information.
