Type of Figure
Type or format of the figure (for example, “cartoon”, “chart”, “diagram”, “map”, “plate”, “workflow”).
This attribute was created to preserve existing semantic content when converting from a publisher’s Tag Set. Many journal Tag Sets make a distinction between different types of graphic objects (some by means of attributes, others with distinct elements). In this Tag Set, all these figure types will be tagged using the <fig> element. The distinctions between different types of figures can be preserved using the @fig-type attribute, for example, by recording the content type of the figure, such as “map”.
Used on Element: <fig>
