Q - question

Georeferenced images also in plain AutoCAD.

A - answer With the CAD Studio's utility - GeoRefImg - you can automatically place georeferenced raster files (pictures) also in AutoCAD or Architectural Desktop (this correlation functionality is by default available only in AutoCAD Map, Civil3D and Raster Design).

Any selected raster image inserted in your drawing (TIF, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, CIT, ECW, SID formats) accompanied with a World file is automatically repositioned to its proper position (coordinates), scale and rotation.

GeoRefImg prompts to select objects (images) and then performs the repositioning and scaling controlled by the World files (TFW, JGW, PGW, GFW, BPW, CTW, EWW, WLD...). World files are searched in the folders of the original raster file (TIFF, JPEG, PNG...). See also the Tip 3515.

Just APPLOAD the VLX file and type the GeoRefImg command.

See Download (free).

The additional command WORLDOUT can create a new world file from a positioned image.

The additional command IMAGESATACH can insert/attach multiple images in one go (one below the other).

With the command (reactor) AGRI you can reposition the images also fully automatically (when attaching the with IMAGEATTACH or IMAGESATTACH). AGRI works as a toggle, its status is stored even between sessions.
