What is an ODG file?
An ODG file is a drawing created by Draw, a vector graphics editing application available in the Apache OpenOffice suite. It contains one or more pages that may include lines, shapes, symbols, and text. ODG files may also store metadata about the drawings, such as the creator, creation date, and when it was last modified.
The ODG file is saved in the OASIS OpenDocument specification, which is an XML-based format. You can save various types of drawings as ODG files, including logos and illustrations.
When you save a graphic with Draw, the application creates an ODG file to store the contents. After saving the file, you can close the file, re-open it, then continue modifying the drawing. To create an ODG file with Draw, select File → New → Drawing, modify the drawing, then select File → Save As....
NOTE: Apache OpenOffice was formerly known as OpenOffice.org.
