WiseImage is a new generation of 2D standalone application for raster editing, raster-to-vector conversion and drawing revision. WiseImage enables you to make quick changes do editing and correction or automatic and semi-automatic raster-to-vector conversation of technical drawings, scanned maps, plans, drafts, sketches and other graphics. It blends raster and vector with CAD functionality and image processing capabilities perfectly ?everything in one single cost-effective application.
Who needs WiseImage?
WiseImage is the solution for everybody who focuses not only on the new design but also on restoration, updating and drawing revision. For you WiseImage is a better CAD than your favorite CAD. This makes WiseImage a one-stop-solution for a wide range of applications GIS, cadastral, aerial and satellite image processing, architecture, engineering, schematics to mention but a few.
Native CAD-style interface with command line and layouts with viewports, combined with high-end image processing, results in a strong synergetic effect! WiseImage works with 2010/2011 DWG files exactly as a CAD application and processes raster files as the best image processing application. WiseImage is like a CAD as its Workspaces include Drawing Layouts and Viewports. Dimension and Line Styles, Hatch types and User Coordinate Systems everything immediately familiar to CAD users.
The other side of WiseImage is a set of premium raster tools to process scanned drawings, satellite imagery, or other raster graphics.
And the crossroad of raster and vector graphics is the WiseImage capabilities to work with raster and vectors together as if it is a single entity set.
What are WiseImage's benefits?
WiseImage provides the most advanced solution for raster, vector and raster-to-vector conversion on raster images. With the powerful suite of tools of WiseImage you can edit scanned drawings and maps easily. WiseImage allows you to save redrafting time and boost up your productivity. The time from customer request until invoicing can be dramatically shortened all without having to reduce the quality or price of your work.
One step from scanner to CAD
Large format scanners produce high-quality black and white, greyscale, or colour raster images. To effectively transfer scanned drawings to CAD, efficient post-processing software is necessary; the ideal solution is WiseImage. Built-in is a high-end scanning module called WiseScan with native support for most wide-format scanners. Image clean-up, correction, calibration, bit-depth reduction and raster-to-vector conversion with WiseImage eliminates repetitive and time-consuming manual procedures.
High quality image processing with precision
Exact calibration is essential when processing scanned drawings. WiseImage offers multiple options for selecting the most suitable method, importing coordinate values or assigning point positions manually. High quality transformation algorithms provide very accurate results.
Full colour images are huge so it is vital to minimize image file sizes. WiseImage can do this without any loss of information. Coloured areas can be combined according to colour similarities or by referring to their distribution frequencies. With the help of this technology the number of colours in an image can be reduced from millions to tens.
In WiseImage it is possible to crop, change resolution, scale, de-skew, and calibrate colour and greyscale raster images. It is possible to change brightness, contrast, hue and saturation and adjust the colour gamut, improve image quality and apply colour filters. Users can easily manage the colours of the image and create/edit LUT files. It is easy to edit, construct or add information onto these images, even rasterizing vectors to generate ISO compliant raster files as often required for compliancy purposes. Merging monochrome and colour images is also a one-click task.
Intelligent raster objects and tracing
WiseImage offers several advanced options for working with raster and vector data. One such option is the unique technology to select raster objects aseparate them into layers. This feature is based on the intelligent selections and the smart WiseObject (text, hatches, and lines) selection.
WiseImage has an advanced tracing function (semi-automatic interactive raster to vector conversion) for colour, greyscale or monochrome images. In addition to easy detailed objects tracing in WiseImage, it is possible to trace raster shapes that correspond with vector templates. Select a raster shape and WiseImage will automatically match it to the appropriate vector object from a default Symbol Library or a customized library created to match user requirements. The polyline tracing feature includes auto-detection of tracing direction.
WiseImage for CAD and GIS users
WiseImage is fully featured with all the typical 2D-CAD tools. It has advanced Viewports, Layouts and Layers support. Its vector drawing and editing capabilities are comparable with any industry-standard 2D CAD package. Vector objects (Text, Dimensions) have associated Styles similar to e.g. AutoCAD. WiseImage can read and write most popular CAD and GIS formats. WiseImage offers the smoothest and most efficient path from paper to your CAD or GIS application!
"Pro" means professional
Automatic Raster-to-vector conversion
The professional version of WiseImage is WiseImage Pro. It features automatic conversion of scanned drawings to CAD files, one-by-one or in batch mode - even overnight. Conversion after fine-tuning of the template parameters with the built-in preview allows for very precise results. Templates can be named, saved and called as required. The result of a vectorization will include vector graphics and text. OCR is provided by the world leading FineReader OCR Engine 9.0.
Vector enhancement tools
WiseImage Pro has a comprehensive set of tuning tools for the auto-correction of vectors obtained as a result of a raster-to-vector conversion, such as merging a group of vectors to an object of a given type (e.g. some segments to an arc or circle), trimming, extending and more.
The COM interface as well as built-in script editor opens new horizons for 3rd-party developers. There are no other CAD software with raster processing and R2V functionality offering an open programming interface.
