There are three ways you can digitize information from yoursource documents or files. You can digitize hard copy documents using anyWintab32 compatible digitizing tablet. You can digitize digital information,such as vector or raster files, onscreen. You can also use your GPS unit todigitize your position or trace your route directly onto a map imported into avector project!
Raster Based Maps
With Didger you can perform onscreen digitizing using animported bitmap or an image you scanned using Didger's scanning functionality.Performing "Heads-Up" digitizing has never been easier. Didger has allthe functionality necessary to import or scan in a bitmap and calibrate theimage in real world coordinates using one of ten georeferencing methods.
Once the image has been calibrated, Didger allows you todigitize points, polylines, and polygons with ease. You can export the digitizedobjects with the image in GeoTIFF format. Or, simply export the digitizedobjects without the underlying bitmap and still retain the georeferencinginformation. Use the numerous bitmap filtering options on the bitmap to makeidentifying and digitizing the objects a breeze.
The graphic above shows the boundary of the Modoc Plateau in Northern California being digitized in blue from a calibrated raster image of the geology of California.
Georeferenced Raster Based Maps
A georeferenced raster image retains all georeferencingparameters. When you import a georeferenced raster image, you can skip thecalibration process and start digitizing immediately. You can import ageoreferenced raster image into a vector or a raster project.
If you import a georeferenced bitmap into a vector project,you can overlay it with other data or vector files or tile it with othergeoreferenced bitmaps.
Import georeferenced bitmaps into a vector project and then overlay it with data and vector files.
If you import a georeferenced bitmap into a raster project,
you can convert the projection of the bitmap (if it contains a projection) or
you can warp (rubber sheet) the image to fit your calibration points.
Import a bitmap into a raster project,
calibrate it, and warp it to fit the calibration points.
Didger also supports importing and/or exporting ESRI World
Files [TFW] and Blue Marble [RSF] files when exporting georeferenced bitmaps.
This is a powerful and advanced feature of Didger!
Vector Based Maps and Data
With Didger you can import a variety of vector based maps and
data files in many formats. Create large coverages easily by importing several
vector or data files into one project. The files will align according to their
coordinate systems. Digitize new features onto an existing vector plot from your
digitizing tablet and map, or digitize onscreen. Change line styles, object IDs,
and add labels to objects with ease. Even import different files onto separate
If the files are projected and contain different projection
information, they will be converted to the projection of the first imported file
using a datum transformation. You can also convert vector or data files from one
projection to another.
This graphic shows three vector files and a data file imported into a vector project in the Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection.
Map Projections and Coordinate Conversions
Converting data from one coordinate system to another is one
of Didger's advanced features. Didger supports over 20 projections and over 200
datums. Easily calibrate or import your files using one of these projections and
convert your coordinates between them. For example, with a few simple steps
Didger can transform your Lat/Long point data into Universal Transverse Mercator
(UTM) coordinates to be used by other mapping applications. All supported
|Albers Equal Area Conic
||State Plane 1927
||State Plane 1983
|Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area
|Lambert Conformal Conic
In addition to projection and datum transformations, Didger
can also convert coordinates of vector projects by utilizing either a math or
georeference operation. Converting coordinates by applying a simple math
operation allows the user to specify a value to add, subtract, multiply, or
divide to the current vector project. Advanced georeferencing conversion is also
available. By specifying the source and destination coordinates of the vector
project, Didger's georeferencing methods allows the user to convert the
current project to the new destination coordinate system. The possibilities are
endless and the flexibility is astounding!
Create stunning world maps in a variety of
projections to convey your information easily. The graphic above uses the
Equidistant Conic projection.

Important News about Digitizing
Nearly all digitizing tablets work with Didger. If you already
have a tablet, Didger requires a 32-bit WinTab compliant digitizing tablet
driver, available from most tablet manufacturers (for no charge) or from third
If you don't currently own a tablet, you shouldn't be
discouraged. The price of new, high-resolution digitizing tablets is
astonishingly low. And with Didger's capabilities, large maps are easily
digitized in a single project so even smaller tablets work quite well.
