Abstract : A multi-axis scanning technique and system for achieving same are provided for digitizing micro-documentation with a pulsed laser beam scanner. Micro-documentation such as a 25mm aperture card reduction of an E-size engineering drawing is incrementally advanced into the path of the scanner and each incremental area is scanned in a predetermined sequence of discrete areas. These discrete areas provide data which is subject to vector and area compaction techniques. (Author)
