ArcScan is another way to get digital data that can be used in GIS. The ArcScan can generate digital data in vector format from a scanned image. The ArcScan extension in ArcGIS is designed for vectorization, which means converting raster data to vector data. The process of vectorization (tracing) can be performed either manually or automatically.
