What is an ODG file?

An ODG file is a drawing created by Draw, an application available in the Apache OpenOffice suite. It contains a vector graphic, which defines an image using points, lines, and curves. ODG files are commonly used for logos, illustrations, and other drawings.

The ODG file is saved in the OASIS OpenDocument specification, which is an XML-based format. It is used by other OpenOffice documents to store text, charts, spreadsheets, and graphic elements. Some examples of OpenOffice documents saved in the format include .ODT, .ODF, .ODP, and .ODS files.

Apache OpenOffice was one of the first major office productivity suites to adopt the OpenDocument specification. StarOffice Draw, the predecessor to Apache OpenOffice Draw, also supported ODG files.

NOTE: Apache OpenOffice was formerly known as OpenOffice.org.
