smart line following:  An interactive process for converting raster line images to line elements in a vector object.  The user clicks on a line image, and the process follows the line, over-tracing a vector line.  The process stops at the edge of the raster, at the end of the line, or at a spaghetti junction of lines that the user must guide it across.
