Vector vs Raster

Raster – a set of horizontal lines composed of individual pixels , used to form an image on a CRT or other screen

Vector – an array of data ordered such that individual items can be located with a single index or subscript

Bitmap – a set of bits that represents a graphic image, with each bit or group of bits corresponding to a pixel in the image

Anti-aliasing – a technique used on a gray-scale or color bitmap display to make diagonal edges appear smoother by setting pixels near the edge to intermediate colors according to where the edge crosses them. The most common example is black characters on a white background.
