Archive conversion to digital requires a series of rigorous steps and Geoselec is mastering all the process.
Maximizing its team, secured vaults, equipment, and information systems, Geoselec can transport, store (physical and digital), scan, index, catalog, print or duplicate, and ship.
Taking care of films
Geoselec is the only firm fully dedicated to the management of aerial imagery collections, especially when historical photographs on films are involved.
Historical imagery on films must be moved from the collection owner's location to our facilities in Quebec City for the scanning phase. Transportation, with the appropriate casing and handling, can be taken care of by Geoselec.
After digitization, Geoselec can return the rolls with the same care or, if the collection owner prefers, can archive the materials in its dedicated vaults.
Taking care of files
The scanning phase is generating not only the image files but also precious metadata, data on the characteristics of each image.
For scanning-only mandates, Geoselec deliver quality data to its customers after scanning. When distribution is also involved afterward, Geoselec management services will then rely on all the generated data to allow and facilitate indexing, searching, displaying. The objective being fulfilling orders, digital or physical, ready to ship imagery or value-added products.
Geoselec can also help collection owners in the distribution and valorisation of their imagery.
To accomplish this, Geoselec propose two options:
- Full management services included when choosing the Geoselec Marketplace channel;
- More technology and autonomy when choosing to buy / rent the Geoselec Platform.
When Geoselec management services are used to its full extend, online orders can be fulfilled in many ways. Authorized users and/or paying customer can get their purchases in a digital format via an online download or as a physical reproduction, a high-quality prints sent by courier.
All those specialized services and processes are overseen by experienced managers and backed by unparalleled customer service, aiming only for the full satisfaction of online users and customers.
