November 27, 2001
New product integrates legacy and paper-based drawings.

Autodesk Inc., San Rafael, Calif., announced Autodesk Raster Design (previously named Autodesk® CAD Overlay®). Autodesk Raster Design integrates legacy and paper-based drawings and photos (aerial/satellite imagery) into the digital design process and keeps the data in a digital format throughout the workflow. New features in Autodesk Raster Design include optical character recognition (OCR), color palette controls, tonal adjustments, and rubber sheeting, helping users eliminate the need to digitally re-create drawings from scratch.
