Blueprint & Map Scanning Services

Transform Your Blueprints and Maps with Our Blueprint Scanners

By scanning your blueprints, plan sets, and maps, you transform them into digital intelligence that enables you to easily access, share, and manage your files for better collaboration. Ensure you are always working on the latest set of files. Document scanning transforms paper documents and other hard copy media into instantly accessible information from anywhere.

We make scanning easy. We can index and scan any volume of documents in a timely manner. Scanning can be done at your location or ours. Our large format Blueprint Scanners can handle large format drawings and schematics.

Got old, aged plans, maps, or blueprints? Not a problem! You’ll get improved images after we scan them. In most cases with older blueprints, bluelines, sepia vellums, and other aged drawings, the resultant images are more readable than the originals. Our services include Drawings Scanning, Map Digitizing, and using top-notch Scanner for Blueprints to ensure quality results.

How does blueprint scanning work?

Here are the steps of our general process for blueprints, plan sets and maps:

  1. Blueprints, plan sets, and maps are barcoded for inventory control
  2. Plan sets are prepared for scanning (unbound, unfolded)
  3. Plan sets are scanned (images captured to digital format)
  4. Scanned images are quality checked for clarity & completeness
  5. Plan sets, blueprints and maps are reassembled (rebound and/or folded) for return to customer
  6. Or original documents are prepared for destruction
  7. Scanned images are processed into final format deliverable (including file naming and folder structuring)
  8. Deliverable images are delivered to customer (via SkySite, SFTP, Thumb Drive, or CD/DVD)

FAQ : Blueprint & Map Scanning Services

  • We use high-quality wide scanners for scanning. We scan at 200-600 dpi to get the highest quality image, in Black & White, Grayscale or Color.

  • Old blueprints require specialised attention. Many drawings are old and torn. We repair the drawings before they are scanned. Drawings, where the background is blue with white lines, can be reversed with special software we have, or they can be captured in colour to preserve the historical value of the Blueprint.
