The program enables the direct true to scale rectification of digital or digitalized photos and plans within AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT and all programs based on the above like Architecture Map and Civil 3D.
When reference values will be measured at the object, a multi-purpose image plan may be generated from digital photos. This plan enables the easy tap of square and linear measures.
The rectified and spatially correct arranged images may now be overwritten with a 3D plan within the CAD program.
Next to the commands of the CAD program PhoToPlan offers many internal commands.
An Alpha-Blending function and new functions for the join of spatially arranged images enable the easy assembling of "panoramas" and consistent three-dimensional front plans.
If ESRI data have been assigned to the photos for geocoding purposes, these photos may be analyzed by PhoToPlan for the positioning. Vice versa, ESRI WORLD files may be generated for rectified and positioned images. That way images that have been positioned and scaled appropriately within an AutoCAD drawing may be imported into other systems, e.g. geographic information systems (GIS), with their exact position.
