How to convert a .bmp file to x,y points and then redraw connecting the points?

P: 1
I am trying to find a way to read in a .bmp file, get the x,y points and then redraw the image by connecting the dots. I can get the dots, but I just don't know how they are relative to one another so perhaps there is another way to get this information.

Basically, the .bmp file is a signature captured from a handheld device, so it's not complicated with color or anything like that. It does have some information other than the signature in it, which I would like, but I would think it would be hard to redraw it connecting dots. The signature would be easiest if I could strip it out. First I need to know how to even get the points in such a way to be able to connect them in order.

Thanks in advance.
