Digital Data Conversion

Monday, March 25, 2019
The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines covering the digital conversion of existing manually drawn data into GIS format. The goal is to obtain the best possible digital map representing an original analog map. As such, it is assumed that a suitable source map exists. While the ultimate quality of the database is dependent on the quality of the source materials and the care used in automation, the procedures for original mapping are not discussed. It must be remembered that precise automation procedures will not improve an inferior base map.
