If you don't want to link external sites, it also allows you to download the html flipbook. In case you need to convert more than one PDF, it has an API to make conversions ...

The concluding sentence of the BlogPost is If the data you are interested ...

I think this answer (by me) offers (almost) the exact (and free) solution: https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/a/77229/70625 It's "almost" ... in that it does NOT process a few files in a batch, because it is an Add-on to the free Acrobat Reader.

Machine-readable PDF files can actually be opened in the current MS Word program. You just need to open the PDF using MS Word. A pop-up warning will appear and once you've confirmed this, it will open as a Word file where you can edit the content like a .doc file and save as PDF again once done. However, this works only to machine-readable files. Meaning, ...

I think the answer is no. A PDF file is basically a picture (or raster in GIS terminology) but: To make a picture into Polygons, Lines etc you would have to put it into a GIS Software package (e.g. QGIS), make sure it's in the correct position on the Globe (Georeferencing) and then trace over the top (Digitize new features). Also from a quick look at the ...

You can use pdfimages from the Xpdf tools (available from the site of XpdfReader). It will not convert a whole PDF page to an image, rather it will extract embedded images from a PDF.
