The cost of photocopying land surveys was taking a toll on Ohio’s Perry County Office. In one year, staffers would fulfill up to 8,000 requests for copies of surveys. But as the cost of leasing, servicing and using its photocopier continued to grow, the staff at the County Office wanted better solution.
Digitally capturing the maps and drawings was an attractive option for the County Office. With each scanned document, the County Office could also build a digital archive. The County Office purchased a Contex large format scanner with Nextimage Repro. The scanner is connected to an existing HP large format printer for hard copies.
Since most customers prefer digital versions of land surveys at the Perry County Office, the Contex large format scanner is in constant use. The powerful scanner is fundamental in helping to build its digital archive of maps, while protecting aging documents from becoming lost or damaged.
