Vectorizer. Raster to vector conversion software.
is a professional software for convert
ing raster image
s to vector
converts drawings, maps and other images, including picture, symbols, black-and-white illustrations from raster to vector
The program can save converted raster images to the following vector formats: DXF, WMF, EMF, EPS, AI or SVG. Files of these vector formats could be imported to popular vector graphics applications like AutoCAD, Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, and several others. For the purpose of supporting GIS applications, the program allows saving images to the ArcInfo Shape and MapInfo MID/MIF formats.
This software is a great replacement for the traditional tracing and digitizing
. It can save lots of your time and effort, for it's significantly quicker to make use of this program rather than do the tracing by hand or using a digitize
In case you would like to check on whether Vextractor
will benefit you - try it for converting your scan
ned images to the vector format. You'll be able to do this even using the demo version of Vextractor
. It allows reading your raster files and converting them.
The program has all tools required for viewing images: scaling, scrolling, and color selection. Vextractor
features: TWAIN support for importing images from any scanner; automatic recognition of orthogonal lines, arcs, and circles; saving the original drawing's scale. Vextractor
can convert halftone and color images to black-and-white images for additional recognition; it can rotate and change the orientation of raster images.
has a built-in vector editor, which can be used for the editing of vectorization
results. The program can create curves using Bezier splines, which allow obtaining images smoother compared to the original raster. By deciding specific optimal parameters, it is possible to obtain an image of curves, which appear greater compared to the original image.
The program also can be used for the digitizing of function graphs to be found in MS Excel and other mathematical applications. The special text format ASCII XYZ with a quite simple structure is provided for importing to such applications.
GIS professionals can use Vextractor
's functions for digitizing hardcopy maps. The vectorizer supports such GIS formats as ArcInfo shape files and MapInfo MID/MIF. Specially for GIS users, the program has the potential of georeferencing raster images by points with known coordinates. The referencing via GeoTIFF and ArcInfo/ArcView World-files can also be supported.
Download and install Vextractor
safely and without concerns.
