Large format scanners are scanners able to digitize at least A2/C-size documents. Large-format scanners, also called wide-format scanners, can digitize a wide variety of documents by either rolling a document past the scanner's CCD cameras or by having an overhead CCD camera capturing the image. Wide-format scanners are traditionally used within architectural, engineering, cartography and GIS mapping industries to digitize blueprints, CAD drawings and maps for editing, copying and archival purposes. With the advent of large-format scanners with both high resolution, rich color-capturing and thick media handling, new application areas have emerged. Today wide format scanners are also used by repro houses, photo labs, advertising agencies and the graphics industry. Even art museums have taken up large format scanning of fragile paintings and pictures for digital use and storage.
