OAOD (Potrace)

Application: Potrace

What it is:

Potrace(TM) is a utility for tracing a bitmap, which means,
transforming a bitmap into a smooth, scalable image. The input is a
bitmap (PBM, PGM, PPM, or BMP format), and the default output is an
encapsulated PostScript file (EPS). A typical use is to create EPS
files from scanned data, such as company or university logos,
handwritten notes, etc. The resulting image is not “jaggy” like a
bitmap, but smooth. It can then be rendered at any resolution.

Features:

Mkbitmap is a program distributed with Potrace which can be used to
pre-process the input for better tracing behavior on greyscale and
color images.
