Paper Abstract

The paper will describe a new and unique systems approach to the scanning, digitizing, vectorizing, and editing of Cartographic images as well as other graphic media. Key elements in the system are the Scan Graphics, scanning system and a vectorizing program known as RAVETM. The scanning system will be described in detail with attention to the document scanners use of flatbed plotter technology, also highlighted will be the RAVE Software's ability to convert the raster scanned data into a vector format for further information processing or editing at a cost effective price in a minimum amount of time. The system runs on a medium sized minicomputer with moderate storage requirements and requires no operator intervention or interaction during the Scanning process of a typical document which may contain up to 2.4 x 109 information Pixels.
