All Colortrac SmartLF wide format scanners are ideal GIS and map scanners.

If you need to scan aerial or satellite photographs we especially recommend the SG Series and Gx+ T56 wide format scanners. If you are scanning thicker maps or maps with board covers all of these scanners come with thick media capability as standard (SG Series up to 15mm, Gx+ T56 up to 20mm).

If you have large amounts of archiving then SmartLF SC Xpress scanner range is the perfect solution.

Key benefits of Colortrac SmartLF wide format scanners as map scanners include:

  • Sharpness with high resolution for scanning fine detail maps.
  • High dimensional accuracy.
  • Advanced paper transport that handles folded and fragile maps.
  • Choice of scanner widths up to 56″ (142.3 cm) – scan maps up to E+ and A0+ in size.
  • Fast mono and color scan speeds.
  • Low cost to buy, economic to run.
  • USB and Ethernet (SG and Gx+ T56) connections

If you need to color classify your maps we recommend that you use a SmartLF large format scanner with SmartWorks Pro software, which includes functions for reducing the number of colors on the scanned map.
