Digitizer : To digitize from scale plans a digitizer or a tablet with a Wintab driver is required. 

Images can be imported directly into IRRICAD, as can survey files. These may be aerial photographs, landscape plans, orchard layouts, subdivision plans, existing designs, or plans you have drawn from measurements taken in the field. A digitizer is one option for those who have access to any type of scaled plan which can be traced into IRRICAD
