Hi Team

I'm after some advice on scanning/mosaic-ing software. We don't have access to a large format scanner (A3 being the largest available to us) but scan lots of A0 & A1 historical geology maps. This means lots of overlapping sections of the same map.

Can anyone recommend some software or a work flow to rejoin these section back into one image? Preferably some "intelligent" software to keep grid lines and edges straight...... (I don't know if this is possible, but in today's world I'd assume anything is!)

Thanks in advance.
Tommo

Well, it won't handle the scanning portion but Microsoft ICE will stitch images together. It's mostly designed for creating panoramas from digital photographs but it may be worth a try for your situation. It's free and worked well for my vacation panoramas. You can probably just google it.
