Visualizing spatial data is important when working with 2D or 3D objects, especially if this data is managed inside a database and you need dedicated tools to access the spatial information and prepare it for your users. This article illustrates how to exploit scalable vector graphics (SVG) for such tasks. It demonstrates how to convert your spatial data stored in IBM® DB2® for Linux®, UNIX®, Windows® or DB2 for z/OS® to SVG and how to build web pages with that technique.
