what use are svg shapes?

Drawing shapes doesnt really seem useful. Does anybody who has made a website know when they are useful?

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. The vector part is very useful when it comes to resolution. This means that if you zoom in you won't find pixels.

Here is every satellite orbiting earth: https://qz.com/296941/interactive-graphic-every-active-satellite-orbiting-earth/ Plenty of shapes, turned into a cool visualization! In general, normal images (jpg, png) are great because you can display anything with them. But, you cannot make them bigger without the image becoming pixely. Vector graphics like svg have the benefit that you can scale them up as much as you want without losing quality.

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is used a lot when it's comes to the illustration. SVG is written in special written in mathematical format of code. Which can be extend upto any type of resolution. For example in real world we using Adobe Illustrator and also Corel Draw sometimes. They all based on SVG. All other format actually pixels base. But SVG is vector base.
