What is an ODG file?

An .ODG file is an OpenDocument Graphics Document file.

Drawings that have been created using an OASIS OpenDocument software application, such as the OpenOffice Draw application (versions 2.0 and later), are saved with the .odg file extension. These ODG files contain vector graphics that have been saved using XML formatting specifications.

OpenOffice Draw is a part of the OpenOffice suite of software applications. OpenOffice was created as an open-source multi-platform, multilingual office suite by Sun Microsystems.

This particular file format is expected to become an industry standard for sharing documents across different computer applications.
