Digital preservation of maps

From: Mary L. Larsgaard <mary>

Yes, there are scanners large enough to scan maps.  The one the Map &
Imagery Lab at the UCSB library has can scan anything from a slide to a
nautical chart; there are the same number of pixels whatever the size of
the item you're scanning, so the smaller the item, the better
resolution.  It's called an Eikonix; we use it with image-processing
software called ERDAS.  Larry Carver, head of the Map & Imagery Lab, has
given a presentation on using digital technology to a Los Angeles
preservation group.
