True or False? A GIS imaging system is only as good as the quality of the scanned images.

True: Image quality is essential when it comes to digital analysis. Without an accurate scan that captures every detail, both in terms of color and dimensional stability, the image has little value. To convert images to points, lines polygons and annotations, GIS users rely on the image quality provided only by a Contex HD Ultra scanner.   Map enlargement

Scanning into a GIS imaging system?  These are your must-haves, exclusive to the Contex HD Ultra wide format scanner:

  • Scanning accuracy of 0.1% even with the faintest details, made possible by Contex's patented (All Wheel Drive) feed system.
  • Full 1200 dpi scanning with Contex Natural Light: real camera technology (CCD) and accurate fluorescent light, with a CRI (Color Rendering Index) above 95%. Because a scanner without fluorescent light is virtually color blind.
  • Color feature extraction.

"The quality of the scanned image is the key to a successful GIS system, which is why we use the Contex HD Ultra. Other solutions require multiple scanning attempts to achieve what we can do with a Contex scanner the first time,"

-- Lisa Desaultes, Owner, Graphic Imaging Services
