Overview- CAD & GIS Digitizing
Digital Data Services, Inc creates drawings for virtually any CAD or GIS package. On-screen digitization is the conversion of drawings, maps, plans, etc., into a file that is ready for use in CAD or Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software systems. The effect is a file separated into layers with standard, recognizable entities (such as walls, windows, roads, rivers, etc.). This allows for features to be changed, copied, or deleted with no effort required by the client to prepare it.
DDS specializes in the conversion of maps into fully editable vector files. The result is a file separated into layers (i.e. contours, transportation, hydrography, and public land survey information (PLSS), etc.). The contours are assigned elevation values, and projected precisely to your specifications. If the map needs to be integrated with existing data, the data is rubbersheeted to control points.
