Compressed SVG (.svgz)

An SVGZ file is a compressed version of a Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG) file. It is compressed using gzip compression and contains graphics data in XML format. This includes the positioning of lines, text, curves, colors, and shapes that make up a two-dimensional graphic. SVGZ files also support layers, transparency, gradients, animations, and filters.

The SVGZ format was developed by Adobe to reduce the size of SVG files when transferring them online. SVGZ files are typically 50 to 80 percent smaller in size than uncompressed SVG files. They are commonly used by graphics professionals and web designers to share SVG graphics with others.

SVGZ files can be opened with various image-editing programs such as Adobe Illustrator (Windows and macOS), Corel PaintShop Pro (Windows), Inkscape (multiplatform), and SVG and SVGZ Viewer (Android).
