Multifunction Inkjet Copier as a proof-of-concept for a GIS related project were doing involving a lot of map scanning and digitizing. They have very active Geology, Archaeology and Cities departments here and their libraries are a government repository for maps as well. The scanning software is provided only as a complete image for the attached kiosk touch screen unit, which runs a stripped down version of the operating system (for the model, Windows 2000). The kiosk computer is limited in storage space and capability and one would have liked to use a separate, more powerful, more network-compliant workstation, but alas one could not as the software cannot be separated. They have also found IDEAL to be very responsive with customer support.
