One West Virginia firm who is helping with this project is Kelly Surveying. Kenneth Kelly and his employees work hard to provide miners with accurate survey information for their mining projects. One of the more complex processes requires Kelly Surveying to bring information from old paper mining maps into their modern AutoCAD system. Many of these maps are torn, stained, discolored and hard to read. They have to be accurately scanned, cleaned up, and then converted from scanned raster drawings into vector drawings that can be manipulated in AutoCAD. This is where CAD/CAM Services comes in. CAD/CAM has a proprietary process that enables them to create a "CAD Perfect" conversion quickly and inexpensively.
