Thanks for the replys to my inquiry - here is the original
message and a summary of the replys.

I just purchased a Cal Comp Drawing Board III, model 34240. I am
looking for some software to digitize images and generate some
basic kinematic data. Any suggestions? - Mike Butler

EXETER RESEARCH HAS A PROGRAM THAT MAY BE HELPFUL TO YOU. IT IS
CALLED FPS SIMULATOR 2.0 (FPS=Force Platform Simulator). I RECEIVED
A DEMO OF THE PROGRAM FROM THEM WHEN I REQUESTED (THROUGH BIOMECH-L)

If you are working with a Macintosh, you can use the shareware NIH Image
which you can download from the Info-Mac archives
(sumex-aim.stanford.edu) with FTP or from mac.archives.umich.edu. You
can obtain X an Y coordinates and the angle between points plus many other
options.

We have a GTCO backlit digitizing tablet that uses SigmaScan software from
Jandel Scientific. I've also been looking for some newer software to
be able to digitize radiographs using this tablet. Most places sell software
for analyzing images that are scanned in using either a flatbed scanner or
a slide scanner. I was able to find one outfit that sells software for
digitizing tablets and they are called Ortho-Graphics.

We are currently working on software for writing tablets. The software
should (in the future) support many types of tables, including yours.
The basis of this software is an interpreter which works in a windows'
like environment (NOT windows from microsoft!) on a (fast) PC. We are
specialized in the research on writing and drawing movements (see our
publication list (not mine but the NICI one)).
At this point in time the package is not yet available but if you are
interested you can contact me (I could then send you a demo (alfa-version)).
