ODG is a file extension for an OpenDocument Graphic file format used by Oracle's OpenOffice.org Draw. The Open Document Format (ODF) is an  open source XML-based file format for saving and exchanging text, spreadsheets, charts, and presentations.

ODG stores vector graphics in standard XML.

ODG was developed by OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards). OpenOffice.org was owned previously Sun Microsystems and was also known as StarOffice.

 

MIME type: application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.graphics, application/x-vnd.oasis.opendocument.graphics

Seriously, who uses these obscure file types?
A friend or colleague sends me a document or other data - I should, in this day of technological enlightenment, expect it to open in my generic office software or be able to be viewed in my browser.
If you are sending people data in files with obscure extensions like .odg, you need to check yourself. It's rude to expect others to chase around converting files into readable formats.

Answer to previous comment:
What is the "generic office software" you're referring to? Alot of generic office software read the odg and other open documents formats flawlessly. Open office and Libre office, among others.

Is it rude to use free and open file formats? No, it's actually the other way around. You have alot to learn.
