Digitizer software replaces a digitizer tablet. Sometimes it is necessary to extract data values from graphs, e.g. in most scientific publications only plots but no data values are published.

DigitizeIt makes it easy to actually get back numbers from such a plot! This is a three step process:

a) import the graph from a file or copy it over the clipboard,
b) define the axes system,
c) digitize it automatically or manually.

Data values can then be saved in ASCII format or copy & pasted directly into any other application, e.g. MS Excel or Microcal Origin.

Here are some key features of "DigitizeIt":
can import almost all common image file formats, incl. gif, png, tiff, jpeg, bmp
pasting of graphs via clipboard,
can capture screenshots
data export in ASCII file or via clipboard in scientific notation, ready to be imported in many other applications (e.g. Mirocal Origin, Mircosoft Excel)
automatic digitizing of line and scatter plots
manual digitizing via mouse clicks
