Scanning and archiving of maps and other documents
The digitisation usually starts with scanning the original documents (maps, photos or drwaings). They may be in form of paper, film, transparency or micro film.
For scanning we use high quality Contex Wide Format color and microfilm scanners.
Few key elements of scanning:
- Scan width: 914 mm
- Media maximum width: 1092 mm
- Media maximum length: no limits
- Media maximum thickness: 15 mm
- Resulation: 50 - 2400 dpi with steps of one dpi
- Black and White (monochrome)
- Grayscale - range of 256 gray tones
- Indexed colors - 256 colors for maps and technical drawings
- RGB - 16.7 million colors for photos
- Micro film scanning (Several possibilities for fine adjustment within all modes)
To improve the scanning quality several adjustments are available during scanning or afterwards, e.g.: automatic cleaning, colour manipulation (contrast, brightness, filtering), align, rotating and cutting. The files can be saved into more than 50 raster formats and delivered on any media.
