Description Computer Graphics Metafile is explicitly used as a format for storing and sharing positional graphics while retaining the details and quality of the image irrespective of the technological platform or device on which it is utilized. The CGM format has been in use as far back as 1986 when it was first released. Unlike some image formats that handle two-dimensional positional image, or bitmap image alone, CGM supports both. Image files are saved as CGM when highly fine details are essential. Such applications include structure design images in aviation, engineering, and other similar technical fields.
