kubit PhoToPlan supports true to scale image rectification for digital photos and scanned maps/plans directly inside AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT and all verticals such as Architecture, Map 3D and Civil 3D. A few reference measures from the photographed object are sufficient to rectify the photos to be used in CAD as a basis for taking accurate dimensions or for accurately digitizing atop the photo. kubit says common digital cameras and wide-angle lenses can be used, and the image rectification process does not require a special knowledge of photogrammetry. PhoToPlan 5 supports AutoCAD 2010, AutoCAD 2010 LT and Vista in 32-bit and 64bit versions, and is available in English, German and French. Prospective PhoToPlan customers may try the software free of charge for four weeks.
