I have vector graphic figures in svg format. In text editor, I can get several data point but that is not the exact value what I am looking for. Is there anyone who can explain me little bit more? Is there anyway to convert the value to the exact one? I want the x coordinators in inch and y coordinator in percentage.

Hi Sayeed,
You could parse the svg file using the normal file read operations to get the coordinate values. What do you mean when you say the data points are not exact ? Also share the svg file if possible, so that it might help others from the community to answer your query.

The coordinates in the output file are not going to be the same as your data values. They can't be in some cases (e.g. YScale='log'), and they would cause a lot of problems in other cases (e.g. very large or small data values).
What are you actually trying to accomplish? I don't think that going through SVG is really likely to get you to where you want to be.
