Raster to Vector Software:
WiseImage is an image editing software that enables
users to vectorize raster images that could be used in ArcView or
other GIS programs that use vector images as a tool for analysis.
WiseImage greatly reduces the amount of tedious time spend on tracing
or redrawing images using the editing tools in ArcView and other
image editing programs.
Here, at the GIS Center in the Map Collection, students,
professors, and Yale affiliates can scan images to a digital format,
then vectorize the image to be used for further analysis. We have
installed WiseImage onto one of our two public computers. Patrons
may make an appointment to use this software.

can be utilized for raster to vector processing..
