object-oriented graphics
  • plural noun graphics which use vector definitions such as lines and curves to describe the shapes of an image rather than pixels in a bit-map image
  • Images which are represented in the form of equations and graphics primitives. Used, for instance, in CAD and drawing programs. This contrasts with bitmap graphics, in which data structures composed of rows and columns of bits serve to represent the information of an image. object oriented graphics are more flexible, require less memory, and are manipulated with greater ease than bitmap graphics. Also called vector graphics.
