More Good News for GIS Users: GeoGRAFX GIS Services Announces Large-Format Scanning Services, New Client Liaison Manager and Support Desk

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - August 18, 2008) - Driven to provide the best for today's GIS users, GeoGRAFX GIS Services announces large-format scanning services, a Client Liaison Manager and a Support Desk.

The long-standing dilemma for mineral exploration and mining professionals has been how to incorporate hard copy, large documents -- typically paper items, such as old exploration/field maps, geologic & drill hole maps, and old production data -- into digital databases.

"We're excited to add large-format scanning services to our long list of GIS services," says Barbara Carroll with GeoGRAFX GIS Services. "We work with maps of all sizes on a variety of materials -- paper, mylar, even old linen and velum. From cross sections to poster-mounted geologic maps, our large format scanner can scan images and documents up to 42" wide and up to 1/2" thick. For fragile or delicate items, we use protective plastic sleeves to protect the original documents during scanning."

Scanned data can then easily be converted to digital files stored on CDs or DVDs. Or printed on a variety of media up to 42" wide. Carroll goes on to say, "We can also provide raster-vector services, so line work can be converted to a GIS/CAD system. We are driven to provide our clients with the full spectrum of GIS outsourced solutions ranging from mapping, GIS and data management."

In addition to large-format scanning services, GeoGRAFX GIS Services is pleased to announce that Lynette McKinley has joined the company to serve as Client Liaison Manager. "My job," says McKinley, "is to be the go-to person for clients, tracking GIS projects and providing updates."

GeoGRAFX GIS Services also announces the organization of a Support Desk, where clients can drop off and pick up GIS items. "We are extremely client-focused," notes Carroll, "and we want to be there for our clients."
