#Digitization: From analogue to digital objects

Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital (i.e. computer-readable) format. The transformation into “bits” results in the representation of an object, image, sound, document or signal by generating a series of numbers that describe a discrete set of its points. The result is called digital representation or a digital image.
