I had this question after viewing Copy/Move AWS meta infrastructure.
Looking into the same issue and note that this question is close to two years old.
Have there been some tools appearing that will translate an existing cloud infrastructure into json code?

You can use cloudformer tool to collect data about all VPC's, subnets and other AWS resources. This cloudformer is part of Cloudformation in AWS. Cloudformer will scan your entire AWS account and convert into a code.

Is cloudformer code compatible with Terraform?  Do you have any input on Terracognita project?
