GNU Fontutils

https://www.gnu.org/software/fontutils/
Scanned image, bitmap, outline font manipulation.

The GNU Font Utilities (a.k.a. Fontutils) create fonts for use with Ghostscript or TeX. They also contain general conversion programs and other utilities. Some of the programs in Fontutils include bpltobzr, bzrto, charspace, fontconvert, gsrenderfont, imageto, imgrotate

The main purpose of these programs is to form a tool chain to generate Metafont or PostScript fonts from scanned images.
