Data Capture

Capturing your Data

Capturing your content to its fullest and most accurate is a vital step in ensuring optimum control of your data. Whether it be in the form of handwritten transcription or through the process of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) of your typed texts, or both, our specialist technicians are on hand to ensure that none of your rich detail is overlooked or lost. Capturing your data is key to making your content entirely searchable.

Once we have converted your data to your chosen format, we can make this accessible online by importing your content to either PastView or your own collection management system.
