I have seen a Canon model demonstrated and I was very impressed with the color quality and functionality.  I would look at their product line if I needed such a device.  I recollect it was around 10 to 15k.

The ECUA has decided to get a 36 inch to 42 inch scanner/copier/plotter all in one.&nbsp; One of the ones we are looking at is a KIP (see link).<br><br>http://www.copiergeeks.biz/product_info.php?products_id=715<br>

<p><span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">SHRUGGERS (or is it
SHRUGGIES?):</span><o:p></o:p></p>

<p><span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Recently I travelled over to
the State Library to investigate antique maps of the Pensacola area.&nbsp; To
my</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">chagrin, I discovered
that the State Library has some 3,000 maps dating back as far as 1585!&nbsp; Of
those 3,000 maps only about 1,000 have ever been scanned so that they are
available for outside use.</span><o:p></o:p></p>

<p><span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">The problem is that the
library had formerly sent maps out to be scanned when an electronic copy was
requested.&nbsp; They did this</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">until
one of their valuable maps was lost or damaged (the people I talked to
weren’t sure which), whereupon the</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">State
Librarian decided not to allow the maps out of the Gray Building in the future.</span><o:p></o:p></p>

<p><span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">These maps are extremely
valuable, hence that fiat.&nbsp; The State Archives (collocated</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">with the library in the R.A. Gray
Building) has an 11 x 17 scanner, which does not help for</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">scanning</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">maps that are up to 36 x 40 inches or
larger and may</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">be quite
fragile.&nbsp; Those maps that have been scanned are</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">available online as TIFFs, PDFs and
JPGs.&nbsp; I have successfully imported some of these antique maps into
ArcInfo</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">and
georeferenced them to current maps and/or aerial photos.&nbsp;</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">In fact, one of these maps, from
1906, is still the</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">legal</span>
<span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">basis for the parcels</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">in the city of Pensacola!&nbsp;</span>
<span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">These maps give the GIS
community a great asset when available.</span><o:p></o:p></p>

<p><span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Since</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">some</span> <span _style="font-family:
&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">2/3 of the maps in the collection have NOT been scanned,
I am suggesting that the SHRUG group investigate acquiring and donating a
36” wide</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">(or
larger)</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">scanner to the
State Library.&nbsp; Then,</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">perhaps
with some significant internship time from the</span> <span _style="font-family:
&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">SHRUG community (maybe students from the</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">FSU Geography Department, etc.) these
2,000+ maps could be accurately scanned</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">(note
that</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">some of the maps
that have already been scanned need to be rescanned more carefully)</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">and made available to the GIS</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">community, students and the general
public, not only in the State of Florida, but everywhere internet access is
available.</span><o:p></o:p></p>

<p><span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">Any comments or
thoughts?&nbsp; Could we,</span> <span _style="font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">perhaps,
discuss this further at the business meeting at the SHRUG Annual Meeting?&nbsp;
Or perhaps one of our vendors could step-up with some help for this?</span><o:p></o:p></p>
