Chapter 5. Coordinate Systems in SVG > Transformations and Coordinates

Transformations and Coordinates

In SVG terminology, a transformation appears to change the position or shape of an SVG shape or object. Transformations can be of the following types:

  • translate— Moves a shape horizontally, vertically, or diagonally onscreen

  • rotate— Rotates a shape about a defined point

  • scale— Changes the size of a shape

  • skewX— Distorts a shape in the horizontal direction and also moves it horizontally

  • skewY— Distorts a shape in the vertical direction and also moves it vertically
