Surveying

surveying map Information about the physical map (height, width, media), the content of the map (mine name, geographic location) and the condition of the map (extent of tears, amount of tape, condition of paper) are recorded in the project database.

Based on the condition of the map and the extent of damage an appropriate treatment is determined.  After surveying, the latest version of the project database is transferred to the main computer via a flash drive.  All information is backed up on a server as well as a flash drive stored in a separate location.
