Maps, Plans & Posters

TownsWeb Archiving’s digitisation technicians have a wealth of experience in the digitisation of maps, plans and posters, turning your material and maps to digital.

With the case of maps, plans and posters, our team can capture both the front and back of each item, ensuring no content is missed. Item references can also be used as file names in order to map the physical to the digital.

Digitisation protects your archives from loss or damage and makes them quickly accessible. We can create output formats in TIFF, JPEG (JPEG2000), PDF (PDFA), or any other industry-standard format you may require.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

We use specialised equipment for large-format scanning and high-resolution planetary scanning, and a range of high-resolution cameras offer non-contact capture of precious, old and fragile material.

All files are captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians using overhead, daylight balanced, non-heat producing lighting before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.

Capture the data within your Maps, Plans & Posters

Digitisation places your maps, plans & posters in the perfect format to capture the valuable data contained within them, offering great potential for system integration and online access and discovery.

Capture the data within your collection with handwritten transcription, identifying any handwritten or cursive script within images and converting this to searchable and machine readable textual metadata through a process of scanning. Using bespoke transcription validation software we can guarantee highly accurate results, carrying out any preprocessing measures required and outputting to any format.
