On the National Contact Day of Document Management 2005, Van Buuren Document Management Solutions made a record attempt to scan 29,200 transparent census sheets. This event, which was organized by DisConsult and DIOR Opleidingen, took place on 28th February 2005 in Zoetermeer.
The digitization process
In order to digitize the transparent sheets, the following steps were taken: selection of material, scanning, and recognition of the data through OCR. A part of the material will shortly be converted into usable tables through Optical Character Recognition (OCR). For this objective special software of the concern Top Image Systems (TIS) will be used.
