Digitizing Tablet

A device attached to a computer consisting of a flat, rectangular pad along which a stylus can be moved. The software driving the tablet records the movements of the stylus across the pad and stores them in a digital file. Digitizing tablets are used to generate original line art or to trace printed line art, thereby digitizing it without the need for scanning it. Also called a data tablet.
