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.
