imaging

Relationships

n. ~ The process of copying documents by reproducing their appearance through photography, micrographics, or scanning.

Notes: 

Imaging, by itself, makes no attempt to make any text in the document machine-readable, although a system may use optical character recognition to convert imaged text to such form. Imaging, especially scanning, is often used to copy paper documents into a document management system that provides the ability to access the images.
