  • Text scanners can be used
  • Entry of data into a file onto a computer
  • Topological errors are identified but hard to eradicate and the scale of entry may differ
  • Used for attribute data that are only available on paper

3. Which one is the incorrect statement about scanning?

  • Resolution is an important component
  • It outputs raster and is then converted to vector
  • It is a manual digitization technique
  • Optical distortion is possible
  • The raster data will then need registering to provide a spatial reference across the grid

  • Indicate speed limits
  • Textual directions
  • Avoids certain types of roads
  • Quantifies map distances
  • Time estimates

5. Which is not a stage in the process of creating a spatial data model?

  • Analyse the data through creating union and interests
  • Identify features of interest
  • Choose how to represent the features conceptually
  • Turn conceptual representation into data model
  • Creature structure for data model so can be physically coded for use in a computer
