AutoCAD Raster Design

Use AutoCAD® Raster Design software to get the most from raster data and enhance designs, plans, presentations, and maps by extending the power of applications based on AutoCAD software.
AutoCAD Raster Design adds value to existing digital design data by helping users

Unlock and extend the value of existing information—Make the most of existing, scanned engineering drawings, plans, and maps by using them in current projects while saving redrafting time with powerful raster editing and raster-to-vector conversion tools.

Improve decision making and get projects approved faster—Create drawings and present proposals that integrate information-rich plans, maps, satellite data, and other forms of imagery to enhance communication and understanding of design intent.

Enhance, preserve, and maintain valuable raster assets—Easily clean up, edit, and maintain your archive of scanned drawings, plans, and maps; enhance, analyze, and edit satellite and aerial imagery.
AutoCAD Raster Design 2009 provides several improvements to existing features, including

64-bit support—Raster Design 2009 supports the environment of its host Autodesk product: 32-bit or 64-bit. This flexibility enables you to easily install Raster Design 2009 on any compatible application using any supported operating system.

ESRI® GRID format improvements—Discrete themed data is a form of raster data commonly used to represent such things as land cover, zoning, and other classified data. Discrete themed data in ESRI GRID format is now represented properly in Raster Design. This capability, coupled with the continuous themed data handling required for working with elevations, provides a more robust environment for accurately using raster grid data.

New Ribbon interface—When Raster Design is installed on AutoCAD 2009–based software, tools and options are presented in a concise visual format—the Ribbon—enabling you to quickly select commands appropriate to the work you are doing. Moving between applications is now quick and intuitive. The Ribbon, which runs across the top of the application window, is both customizable and expandable, so it can be optimized for each user and to meet each company’s standards.
AutoCAD Raster Design is one of the leading raster applications for design professionals in civil engineering, GIS/mapping, architecture, manufacturing, and any industry needing to use or reuse scanned paper drawings, maps, aerial photos, digital elevation models, satellite imagery, and similar digital design data.
AutoCAD Raster Design can be added on to AutoCAD and products based on AutoCAD, such as AutoCAD® Architecture and AutoCAD® MEP for building design; AutoCAD® Mechanical, AutoCAD® Electrical, and the AutoCAD-based components of the Autodesk® Inventor™ product family for manufacturing; AutoCAD® Map 3D for GIS and mapping; Autodesk® Topobase™ software for infrastructure design and management; and AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, AutoCAD® Land Desktop, and AutoCAD® Civil 3D®—Land Desktop Companion software for civil engineering, land use, and development. Built on the AutoCAD platform, this family of products helps improve the overall productivity of design teams.
