Techniques

SVG graphical components can be made linkable by wrapping them in a elements. Linked elements should always include an xlink:title attribute identifying the nature of the referenced resource.

That certain graphical components are linkable, and others not, also needs to be established for users that may have to zoom the image or otherwise may not be able to ascertain which components are linked.

Example

<a href="http://www.ontario.ca"
   xlink:title="Ontario government web site">
   <g …>
	  <title>Province of Ontario</title>
	  …
   </g>
</a>
