Luca: I have taken Even's feedback and made some more text changes, and also added a hillshade DEM (of Frank's home area in Canada) created through GDAL 2.2.1 on my machine. It creates a big SVG now, but you/designer can decide to keep that image or not.

PS. I created it using LibreOffice!

Thanks a lot Luca for tackling this !

A few observations/proposals:

- wondering if the subtiltle "The Geospatial Data Translation Tools" shouldn't be replaced by the "The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library and translation tools" to get both the menaing of the acronym and the practical uses

- perhaps replace "Welcome" by "Introduction" ?

- in this paragraph, I would remove bold characters starting with "As a library"

- I would replace "As a library, it is" by "It is writen in C++ and"

- In the raster format list, I would add OGC WCS/WMS/WMTS.. And int the vector format list OGC WFS

- I would replace in the vector formats "ESRI Personal Geodatabase" by "ESRI FileGeodatabase" since the latter is probably now more common than the former.

- in the language list, Ruby and VB6 should be removed (no longer supported)

- in "features", in the first bullet, I'd :

* add after "image warping": "reprojection"

* add after "merging": "tiling, DEM-related utilities (hillshading, slope, hypsometric rendernig)"

- in the "Support for large files" bullet, I'd append "- with modest memory requirements"

- in "where it is used", I'd removed OpenEV since the project is kind of dead now. In the "also utilized by" list, perhaps add gvSIG (to have at least one non C++ application)

- I don't know if the white backgound of the GDAL logo is intentional. If not, you could start from the original SVG drawing that has not this background :
