You are using an outdated version of IE which is not supported by ResearchGate anymore. For a faster, safer browsing experience, I Have Digital maps in PDF files and I would like to convert them into either Vector formats or Raster Formats. Any idea or any software that can help me? First you crop the map which is there in your PDF using snipping tool and save this cropped image map in any image formats (preferably in .TIFF format) using image processing software. (I am using FastStone Photo Resizer). Then you can import that into GIS software as raster image. However, you really can not convert any image into vector map unless n until you digitize the same. you can also use Universal Document Converter to convert pdf into image(raster) and vice versa. then any GIS software for raster to vector conversion Source.
