Scanning Services

If your project requires capturing high quality images from hardcopy sources, consider our custom scanning services. Digital Data Services, Inc. (DDS) has scanned millions of documents for over 5,000 different customers since 1998. Our staff is knowledgeable in multiple disciplines, so we understand what your needs are, what the intended use of the documents are, and the advantages and limitations of the software applications that the data will be pulled into.


Digitizing Services

DDS specializes in the conversion of maps into fully editable vector files. The result is a file separated into layers (i.e. contours, transportation, hydrography, and public land survey information (PLSS), etc.). The contours are assigned elevation values, and projected precisely to your specifications. If the map needs to be integrated with existing data, the data is rubbersheeted to control points.


File to File Translation

When you require assistance integrating existing data into your project Digital Data Services, Inc. (DDS) can help you. Our Consultants have worked with the conversion of many different file formats and have integrated those formats into tangible workflows designed specifically for our clients.


Georeferencing Services

If the maps are not georeferenced, no “intelligent” information can be displayed or positioned on the map. Depending on the source materials and the specifications of the project, maps can be registered to either a coordinate system, or to another base map such as a digital orthophoto.


EBCDIC Conversions

If your company has obtained EBCDIC formatted digital data from the Texas Railroad Commission, and is not sure on how to convert the data into GIS files, database files, or simple ASCII text delimited files, then Digital Data Services, Inc (DDS) has the solution for you.
