 for vector graphics
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  vector graphics
  
      (Sometimes called "object-oriented" graphics,
     though it's nothing to do with object-oriented programming).
     The representation of separate shapes such as lines, polygons
     and text, and groups of such objects, as opposed to bitmaps.
     The advantage of vector graphics ("drawing") programs over
     bitmap ("paint") editors is that multiple overlapping elements
     can be manipulated independently without using differenet
     layers for each one.  It is also easier to render an object at
     different sizes and to transform it in other ways without
     worrying about image resolution and pixels.
