I'll talk about my process, in the event it is useful.  I'm sorry to
report I don't have anything more convenient.  There are surely better
ways to solve the problem you're having, the solution outlined here
solves the problem I have.


I download the .svg file, which doesn't seem to be the problem here,
it seems that instead the question is how to convert this to a
bitmap at an appropriate dpi?

I'm typesetting my final document using TeX, which uses .eps files
(encapsulated postscript) as it's image format.  I use a program
called inksacpe to convert my .svg file to .eps (the underlying
library that does this is called Cairo, which I don't think is
relevant here.):

  $ inkscape -f file.svg -E file.eps

I do some intermediate processing, in part to compute the bounding
box so I can later scale it.  The method I use to determine the
size, orientation, and scaling factor are specific to my problem,
so I won't go over them.

I use the epsf package to render my final document, which is where
I do scaling from the size of the .svg file to the size as I want
it to appear on the page.  Here is an example TeX file demonstrating
that:

  \input epsf
  \epsfysize=1in\epsfbox[0 0 15 12]{technique.eps}
  \vfill\eject

In this case, My final render size is 1 inch, but my .eps file
(which was created from the .svg file) has dimensions 15x12.

Best wishes,

-Alan
