Paper to Digital Image Special Document Type (Cost Driver) The legacy of Sanborn maps: &quot;Stated simply, the Sanborn maps survive as a guide to American urbanization that is unrivaled by other cartography and, for that matter, by few documentary resources of any kind.&quot; They are a highly useful resource for historical research, planning, preservation, genealogical research, sociological studies and research of urban geography. Kim Keister - Author Originally created for assessing fire insurance liability in urbanized areas in the United States. The maps include detailed information regarding town and building information in approximately 12,000 U.S. towns and cities from 1867 to 1970. <ul><ul><li>Originals are over-sized documents – 21” wide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sanborn are all color maps and must be scanned in color </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>May be stored in Mechanical Binders or Books </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>May be encased in Mylar or other type archival envelope </li></ul></ul><ul><li>21” x 25” </li></ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><li>Loose </li></ul><ul><li>map File Cabinets </li></ul><ul><li>Bound in Books </li></ul><ul><li>Binders </li></ul>Sanborn Maps Image Issues (Cost Drivers) Attributes Description

If it is opaque (light does not pass through), the film is likely acetate. Unwind several inches of film. Acetate film tends to curl . Also, If you are still indecisive on the nature of the film, try to tear a small section of the film. If it tears easily, then it is acetate.

    54. 54. Indexing Indexing (Cost Driver) <ul><li>Indexing is, in essence, the electronic equivalent of the paper-based retrieval protocol. For example, County Land Records, Deed Books, are commonly retrieved via the grantor, grantee, book number, page number, instrument number, part of the Legal Description, or some combination of all. </li></ul><ul><li>Electronic Records Management Systems (ERMS) use a similar protocol for retrieving images. However, instead of the index information being located on the bind of a physical book, a page, file cabinet or typed into an index book, the information is entered electronically into a database file of some nature and associated with a specific image or set of images within an image database/file. </li></ul><ul><li>Field Indexing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Alpha/Numeric data associated with a specific image </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keystroke used to retrieve a specific keystroke/image or set of images within an ERMS. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Key Field </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Linking newly scanned images to existing index records </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Used to import new images into a legacy index database </li></ul></ul>
