    jsDraw2DX is a standalone JavaScript library for creating any type of interactive graphics with SVG (and VML for old IE browsers).

    Besides the ability to generate all basic shapes like line, rectangle, polygon, circle, ellipse, arc, etc., the library can draw curves, beziers (any degree), function plots, images and decorated text.


    The library is object-oriented and its coordinate system + scaling can all be configured.

    As it uses SVG, interactivity can be easily accomplished by manipulating the DOM.

    P.S. jsDraw2DX is built by the creators of jsDraw2D which draws any shapes using JavaScript.

  • Flash was the tool for creating interactive maps where we can hover or click any region and see details about them.

    Right now, it is easier to create maps with JavaScript and, thanks to JS frameworks, it even gets much simpler.


    jVectorMap is a jQuery plugin for creating such interactive maps very quickly.

    It uses SVG as the map format and there are various ready-to-use map files provided. Also, using a vector graphics editor (like Adobe Illustrator), we can draw anything (like the map of a shopping mall), export it to SVG and add interactivity to it.

    There are options provided for customization (colors, opacity, etc.) and callbacks exist on every level.

    P.S. There is also a Python converter for creating map data from GIS files.

    P.S.2 If you are in search of vector freebies, checks these vector images.

    iconmonstr is a free set of mono-colored and very simplistic yet beautiful icons.

    The set includes 600+ items and it is possible to find multiple variations for almost each element.

    Icons are mostly focused for web apps as most of them are actions, charts, badges or social networking-related.

    P.S. The only bad part is that the set is not offered as a single download pack but you have to browse pages to view/download each of them.
