Welcome to ESRI® ArcScan™ for ArcGIS®, the raster-to-vector conversion extension to ArcMap™. The ArcScan extension allows you to take scanned images of maps and convert them into vector-based feature layers, such as shape files and geodatabase feature classes. Vectorization can be performed manually by interactively tracing raster cells or automatically using the batch mode. The process of converting raster data into vector features relies on user- defined settings. These settings allow you to influence the geometric composition of the output vector features. Once you have determined the optimal vectorization settings for your data, they can be readily saved and reused.
