Make the most of raster images, maps, aerial photos, satellite imagery, and digital elevation models. With powerful raster editing and raster-to-vector conversion tools, AutoCAD® Raster Design software helps you to easily clean up, edit, enhance, and maintain scanned drawings and plans in a familiar AutoCAD® software environment for use in AutoCAD, AutoCAD® Architecture, AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, AutoCAD® Electrical, AutoCAD® Map 3D, AutoCAD® Mechanical, AutoCAD® MEP, AutoCAD® and P&ID.
Timesaving image display features—Use a wide range of image data, embed images, insert and export images, and use a polygonal mask boundary to display image subsets.
Image editing and cleanup—Includes commands for despeckle, bias, mirror, and touch up.
Raster entity manipulation (REM)—Use standard AutoCAD commands on raster regions and primitives; easily erase raster images, lines, arcs, and circles.
Vectorization tools, including Raster-to-Vector OCR Software—One-pick vectorization and raster-to-vector conversion tools give you more accurate results when you create lines and polylines from raster images and data. Optical character recognition (OCR) software technology helps convert raster files into vector drawings.
Image transformation functionality and georeferenced image display and analysis tools—When used with AutoCAD Civil 3D, and AutoCAD Map 3D.
