DESKTOP SCANNING FOR CARTOGRAPHIC DIGITIZATION AND SPATIAL ANALYSIS

Digitizing source materials for use in cartography, remote sensing, and Geographic Information Systems is tedious and expensive. An alternative to the labor-intensive manual digitizing table is the raster scanner and associated raster to vector conversion software. This paper evaluates the desktop scanner as a means for data entry in cartographic, remote sensing, and Geographic Information System applications.
