Digitize a Scanned Paper Map

Use AutoCAD Raster Design to convert a scanned raster map to vector (DWG) format. Then, use AutoCAD Map 3D to clean up any geometry errors. Export the data in a geospatial format. Once you connect to the new geospatial data store, you can add attribute data.

Use AutoCAD Raster Design to digitize a scanned raster map and convert it to DWG vector format

In AutoCAD Map 3D, correct any geometry errors introduced during scanning and digitizing

Export the resulting DWG objects to SDF, a file-based geospatial format

Connect to the SDF file to bring the data into your map as geospatial features

Use the Data Table to add attribute data for the SDF features
