digitizer tablet (digitizer or graphics tablet)

A digitizer tablet (also known as a digitizer or graphics tablet) is a tool used to convert hand-drawn images into a format suitable for computer processing. Images are usually drawn onto a flat surface with a stylus and then appear on a computer monitor or screen. Digitizer tablets can also be used as an input device, receiving information represented in drawings and sending output to a CAD (computer aided design) application and PC-based software like AutoCAD.

Digitizers are often used along with takeoff software because they can quickly measure, transfer and store quantities seen on a blueprint. Additional benefits are found in features such as a dimension list, which can be saved and used for a future estimate.

Digitizer tablets are compatible with most digitizer software programs that have a 32-bit WinTAB driver.

Is there a graphic tablet that I can use to complete pre printed forms at work? The form has various sections with headers and areas for drawings. In a perfect world, I’d overlay the form on the tablet and then fill out the form as usual. I’d then like to see what I’ve written / drawn populate the same form saved to a file on my computer. This would save me from scanning each form to save it. Suggestions?
