Drawing and Illustration conversion to PDF/Raster format.
ELAN ELIP JM: Highly specialized conversion software with optimized OCR for legacy drawings with service-based automated operation.
ELAN ELIP JM
software runs on a Windows XP workstation or server as an
end-user application or as a service. The main goal of the software application is to take a scanned raster drawing
and convert it to a searchable PDF file.
- Input: Raster drawings (TIFF G4, JEDMICS C4, and many other
- Output: PDF with raster + hidden vector text.
The ELIP JM has two modes: a fully automatic conversion mode that acts as a
service -- and the full manual workflow detailed in the ELIP TM product. In many
ways the ELIP JM is an extension of the ELIP TM application, although they are
very different when it comes to the underlying technology. ELIP JM's
segmentation and recognition technology is optimized for drawings that follow
certain drafting conventions commonly found in the US manufacturing and building
ELIP JM is designed to provide high volume, unattended, automatic conversion to
enable full text search of large volumes of legacy drawing information.
- Hot Folders. One or more folders are placed in a "hot folder",
all containing raster images to be converted. ELIP JM Service will monitor
the hot folder for newly-placed folders/files. Once a "complete folder"
condition is met, the drawings will be automatically converted to
- XML Metadata. As an option, each raster image can have an
accompanying metadata file in XML or delimited format. This file will be
updated with some ELIP-specific information about the workflow state and the
outcome of the conversion process.
- Integration Points. The ELIP JM program offers several
integration points that provide interface to other workflows.
- SQL database back-end. The open-source Firebird database engine
serves as the log recording mechanism.
- Correction Workflow. If desired, the full manual correction
workflow can be also enabled to process the raster images. In this mode the
workflow is identical to the ELIP TM edition and full quality control of the
conversion process can be enforced.
The ELAN ELIP JM application can be purchased as a Windows application running in
service mode for unattended operation.
