Rock art tracings

From: Emily Fryer <emily<-at->
Date: Sunday, July 14, 2013
Canterbury Museum in New Zealand are in the process of documenting
their large (over 800 items) collection of rock art 'tracings' made
on plastic sheet. These are in many cases the only remaining record
of these artworks and certainly the only record of these artworks
from the 1960s, prior to subsequent degradation.

Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with a particular
scanning or overhead photography system suitable for capturing large
(over 1m x 1m) images taking into account the need for accurately
recording scale and minimising reflection from the plastic?
