Softelec’s new Version 3 of their VPmap Series software has become available with a number of considerable enhancements. Both products, VPmap and VPmap pro, provide a unique set of functions and features for capturing spatial data from scanned maps with cost-saving efficiency. VPmap Series V3 now also include full function sets from softelec’s latest VPHybridCAD product line release, while containing additional specialized tools for applications in the field of GIS and cartography. Both, Windows and AutoCAD 2004 to 2009 platforms are supported with one single license.

VPmap and VPmap pro offer a flexible and independent platform for building up digital spatial data collections from scanned maps in cadastral projects, land development, land survey, geology, and many more. New functions in Version 3 include an enhanced assignment and handling of meta data (attributes) and specific automatic clean-up options for polylines.

VPmap and VPmap pro contain specialized functions for extracting spatial data from black and white or colored scanned maps. Literally with a click of the mouse area objects can be captured as closed polylines or filled polygons, including accurate elimination of overlapping borders. Assigning attribute information to objects is just as convenient and simple, as some can even be calculated automatically. Altogether, VPmap Series contributes to reducing costs immensely when feeding a GIS upon existing paper maps.

The extensive features in the VPmap Series products also include seamless assembly of several raster maps, color separation, mosaicing as well as high-speed and accurate multi-point rubber-sheeting. An individual set-up for different coordinate systems and map projections provides maximum flexibility for import and export. Major supported file formats for import and export are GeoTIFF, DWG (Autodesk), SHP (ESRI), MIF (MapInfo), and DGN (Bentley).

In addition to VPmap’s standard features VPmap pro comes with a program module for fast automatic vectorization and symbol recognition. Automatic vector conversion options can also be applied on color maps. With its built-in scanner interface VPmap pro thus provides a complete and unique “Scan-to-GIS“ Desktop.
