Welcome to ScanIt

ScanIt is a program for obtaining data from scanned graphs. Data can be present in the form of curves, of symbols, or you can simply gather data by clicking on point in the graph.

To get started, you first have to either open an image of a graph. Next, you will need to identify three known coordinates in the graph to define the X and Y axes.

Now you can either pick your data points by hand, or collect the data from curves or symbols. After you have collected the data, copy it to the clipboard or save it to file, so that you can continue using the data in another application (such as a spread-sheet program, or graphing software).

System requirements

To run ScanIt you will need Window XP, or higher.
