Canon Presents an Innovating Printing Solution for Complex Geographic Systems

At the upcoming 2014 ESRI International User Conference, which will take place on July 14-18 in San Diego, CA, Canon will display its latest solution for geographic information systems (GIS) to improve print quality, efficiency and workflow.

When printing intelligent maps, layers of complex imagery are used in the process. But sometimes, there are limitations within existing large format print technology that force GIS operators to remove layers of critical information. Since printers don’t have the sufficient processing speed, they can’t handle the required file size, detail or depth, and this is why maps are scaled back prior to printing.

This is where the Océ ColorWave 650 printer comes in, to provide a solution to GIS workflow issues. This system allows technical users to print, copy and scan in both black and white and color without sacrificing productivity, quality or layers of detailed information.

The printing technology delivers prints that dry instantly, and maps can be folded and stacked immediately. The produced maps are very durable, which makes them ideal for field work in various conditions.
