Aerial and satellite photographs often contain information about their location and scale. This information makes the images
“georeferenced.” AutoCAD cannot use this georeferencing information, so it cannot properly position the imagery, but AutoCAD Map 3D can.
In this exercise, you insert a digital raster graphic (DRG) of Redding, California, into a drawing of the same city. The information
in the associated TIFF world file (TWF) allows you to locate and scale the image correctly.
If you are connected to the Internet, play the video to see how to insert raster images. The steps for this procedure are
listed below the video.
Raster images provide context for drawing objects, like roads.
