Digitisation has Started

As tithe maps are very large, often 2m by 3m or more, there is no scanner available which can do the work. We have had to develop a special technique for digitisation which involves hanging the map on a curved wall and taking a number of photographs of every part of the map. These photographs are then digitally stitching them together to make one large map. Some of these files are more than 1GB

A few maps have already been digitised for testing purposes but since the 10th of April two members of staff have started to go through them all.
