{MAP SCANNING} 2015 Year-End Report

2015 was a successful year for our S{Q}L Map Scanning Project. The creation of the Auto-cropping application helped speed up the scanning process. Several new improvements were introduced on the Map Scanning Application, including the statistics page which help supervisor to monitor the work progress and the training section which improve the efficiency of employee training process.

We are pleased to announce that we have reached 3692 documents input during October of 2015 (Figure 1). As of 01/03/2016, our server stores 27034 maps/documents, including ~10000 maps and 17158 job folder pages (Figure 2).
