No job is too daunting for expertise coupled with experience!

To convert a scanned image to vector completely manually is an extremely meticulous job. The existing paper maps, Ariel photos and satellite imagery, which tend to be in abstract form, are literally swarmed with multiple layers of information. As a result, to pull off manual mapping of large scans or a GIS project altogether, translates into a highly labour intensive task. It is critically challenging, since human hand is capable of about 40 DPI only. In other words, getting vector conversion done manually only is likely to render any project highly expensive and time-consuming. However, solely relying on the automated tracing can deliver flawed/ dissatisfactory results. At VectorzMedia, therefore, we implement a strategic mix of manual and automated methods to convert any scanned map to vector, so as to pass on optimal results to our clients in short time.

Things to keep in mind while scanning a map for vector conversion
The quality of initial raster image determines the accuracy and quality of its corresponding vectorized version. As such, it is recommended to keep the following pointers in mind while acquiring the image from an existing map:

  • Spatial Resolution. The spatial resolution of the scan should be optimal to provide a clean, clear and sharp original image for starter.
  • Scanning Resolution. The scan should be acquired at the same resolution as the original source of the image. Scanning resolution too high adds unnecessary noise/ artefact in the scan, whereas scanning resolution too low generates images with lines touching each other.
  • Scanning Resolution for Color Scanner. With a color scanner, it is advisable to set the scanning resolution bit lower than original for effective results.
