SVG Family-Tree Generator (SVG-FTG)

Description

SVG-FTG is a free program to generate Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), in combination with HTML, CSS and Javascript, to display interactive family trees on your website or blog. Unlike normal images, SVG does not go all fuzzy when you zoom in. There are several packaged interactive applications that can be run from your tree, and an open framework to develop your own. It supports complete control over layout, thumbnail images, hover text, HTML biographical or historical notes, GEDCOM import and export, scrolling/zooming of individual trees, timeline reports, and linked trees. The designer is Windows-based but the output is neutral and runs in all modern browsers. NB: the output is non-proprietary, royalty-free, and needs nothing to be installed first; hence, it is ideal for sharing with friends and family.

Supported mouse operations in this small example:

SVG-FTG has support for web-based image galleries that can be searched for people or places, or combinations thereof, mentioned in your trees. The notes use rich-text and so can include images, scans, and tabbed content. It also has several features to help integration with other software, including iframe support and automation.

Latest version is 6.3.1
