Flowmap and SVG
Flowmap is a program for producing and manipulating flow charts. It is written in C++ and provides an enviroment in which user-definable or pre-defined symbols can be placed onto a canvas and linked together, animated or have actions associated with them, in a user-friendly fashion.
SVG would appear to be an ideal target language to which the flow charts could be exported. The symbols used in the charts should be defined once in the <defs> section of the SVG file and then displayed using <use> tags and manipulated using the document object model (DOM).
The flowmap project is in a very early stage of development. It is being developed in conjunction with Flowmap by Electronic Publishing Solutions as a spin-off from the SVG generation projects currently being developed with the University of Nottingham.
