creating XY coordinates

Hello (I apologize for cross posting),

Does anyone know of a way to automatically /electronically create XY
coordinates from an electronic image?  I can place the cursor over the
data point and hand record the XY coordinate that way, but... I'm hoping

there is an easier way.  I digitized some photographs using Adobe
Illustrator to reflect individual plants in 1m^2 plots over 4 years.  I
have fantastic and visually accurate graphs, but no  * precise * XY
coordinates associated with them.  I need the scale to be very fine; as
fine as in the photographs and NOT as rough as my field notes.  Any
ideas would be GREATLY appreciated.
