digitize

[′dij·ə‚tīz]
(computer science)
To convert an analog measurement of a quantity into a numerical value.

digitize

To convert an image or signal into digital code by scanning, tracing on a graphics tablet or using an analog to digital conversion device. 3D objects can be digitized by a device with a mechanical arm that is moved onto all the corners.
