Make the most of rasterized scanned drawings, 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® environment for use in AutoCAD®, AutoCAD® Architecture, AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, AutoCAD® Electrical, AutoCAD® Map 3D, AutoCAD® Mechanical, AutoCAD® MEP, AutoCAD® P&ID, and Autodesk® Topobase™ software.
Time saving 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 touchup.
Raster entity manipulation (REM)
Use standard AutoCAD commands on raster regions and primitives; easily erase raster lines, arcs, and circles.
Vectorization tools, including OCR
One-pick vectorization tools give you more accurate results when you create lines and polylines from raster data. Optical character recognition (OCR) for converting drawings.
Image transformation functionality and georeferenced image display and analysis tools
When used with AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D, and Autodesk Topobase.
