Get real CAD functionality with full
Intelligent Raster feature support in just
one application – now!
WiseImage has become the perfect combination of a 2D CAD package including an image processing application. It blends raster and vector, productivity and precision, CAD functionality and image processing capabilities perfectly - everything in just one cost-effective application.
Now WiseImage is a better CAD application than your favorite CAD package. Native CAD-style interface with command line and layouts with viewports, combined with high-end image processing, results in a strong synergetic effect! WiseImage 11 works with DWG files exactly as a CAD application and processes raster files as the best image processing application. This makes WiseImage 11 a one-stop-solution for a wide range of applications - GIS, cadastral, aerial and satellite image processing, architecture, engineering, schematics to mention but a few.

One step from scanner to CAD
Large format scanners produce high-quality black and white, greyscale, or colour raster images. To effectively transfer scanned drawings to CAD, efficient post-processing software is necessary; the ideal solution is WiseImage. Built-in is a high-end scanning module called WiseScan with native support for most wide-format scanners. Image cleanup, correction, calibration, bit-depth reduction and raster-to-vector conversion with WiseImage eliminates repetitive and time-consuming manual procedures.
High quality and precision: Image processing at its best
Exact calibration is essential when processing scanned drawings. WiseImage offers multiple options for selecting the most suitable method, importing coordinate values or assigning point positions manually. High quality transformation algorithms provide very accurate results.
Full colour images are huge so it is vital to minimize image file sizes. WiseImage can do this without any loss of information. Coloured areas can be combined according to colour similarities or by referring to their distribution frequencies. With the help of this technology the number of colours in an image can be reduced from millions to tens.
In WiseImage it is possible to crop, change resolution, scale, deskew, and calibrate colour and greyscale raster images. It is possible to change brightness, contrast, hue and saturation and adjust the colour gamut, improve image quality and apply colour filters. Users can easily manage the colours of the image and create/edit LUT files using the Colour Classifier. It is easy to edit, construct or add information onto these images, even rasterizing vectors to generate raster file as often required for compliancy purposes. Merging monochrome and colour images is also a one-click task.
Intelligent raster objects and tracing
WiseImage offers several advanced options for working with raster and vector data. One such is the unique technology to select raster objects or separate them into layers. This feature is based on the intelligent selections and the smart WiseObject (text, hatches, and lines) selection. The built-in OCR feature can recognize characters and numerals within the text block that the user is going to modify. WiseImage also allows the use of external OCR modules - e.g. OCR for Chinese language.
WiseImage has an advanced tracing function (semi-automatic - interactive raster to vector conversion) for colour, greyscale or monochrome images. In addition to easy graphic objects tracing in WiseImage, it is possible to trace raster shapes that correspond with vector templates. Select a raster shape and WiseImage will automatically match it to the appropriate vector object from a default Symbol Library or a customized library created to match user requirements. The polyline tracing feature includes auto-detection of tracing direction.
WiseImage for CAD and GIS users
WiseImage is fully featured with all typical 2D-CAD tools. It has an advanced Viewports, Layouts and Layers support. Its vector drawing and editing capabilities are comparable to any industry-standard 2D CAD package. Vector objects- such as Text and dimensions have associated Styles similar to e.g. AutoCAD. WiseImage can read and write most popular CAD and GIS formats. The data exchange capability of WiseImage makes for a smooth transition from a CAD or GIS-data digitizing application to WiseImage.
'Pro' means professional
Automatic Raster-to-vector conversion
The professional version of WiseImage is WiseImage Pro. It features automatic conversion of scanned drawings to CAD files, one-by-one or in batch mode - even overnight. Conversion after fine-tuning of the template parameters with the built-in preview allows for very precise results. Templates can be named, saved and called as required. The original or custom line styles, widths, text height, and hatch styles are preserved during conversion. The result of a vectorization will include lines, polylines, arcs, circles, text, and shapes (blocks).
Vector enhancement tools
WiseImage Pro has a comprehensive set of tuning tools for the auto-correction of vectors obtained as a result of a raster-to-vector conversion, such as merging a group of vectors to an object of a given type (e.g. some segments to an arc or circle), trimming, extending and more.
WiseImage Pro provides a revolutionary breakthrough in the way its open architecture and ActiveX technology can be used for automation and scripting to create vertical adaptations or remove repetitive time consuming tasks. The COM interface as well as built-in script editor opens new horizons for 3rd -party developers and advanced users. There are no other CAD software with raster processing and R2V functionality offering an open programming interface.
