This package provides a command similar to the \includegraphics command of the 
graphicx package, but for the inclusion of SVGs using Inkscape.

     \includesvg[<options>]{<svg filename>}

A variety of options are available, including width, height, and path of the 
SVG. Additionally, it is possible to extract the SVG image to a PDF, EPS, or 
PNG, exactly as it is rendered within the LaTeX document. Within the
documentation an example is given using an SVG created from the high energy
particle physics analysis package ROOT.

svg – In­clude and ex­tract SVG pic­tures us­ing Inkscape

The pack­age pro­vides a com­mand sim­i­lar to \in­clude­graph­ics com­mand of the graph­icx pack­age, which en­ables the in­clu­sion of SVG im­ages us­ing Inkscape.

  \in­cludesvg[<op­tions>]{<svg file­name>}

A va­ri­ety of op­tions is avail­able, in­clud­ing width, height, and path of the SVG. The im­age is con­verted to an ap­pro­pri­ate for­mat, us­ing the \write18 mech­a­nism to ex­e­cute a shell com­mand, and the pack­age also of­fers the means of sav­ing a PDF, EPS, or PNG copy of the im­age, at the same time.

The doc­u­men­ta­tion shows an ex­am­ple us­ing an SVG cre­ated from the high en­ergy par­ti­cle physics anal­y­sis pack­age ROOT.
