Building on 32 years of experience developing and promoting electronic imaging at Eastman Kodak Company and two decades of consulting with the U.S. Census Bureau, author Dr. Bradley Paxton explains — in an easily understandable way — the theory and practice of data capture to help managers, practitioners, and end users get the best data capture quality possible at the lowest cost.

From the age-old, fill-in-the-bubble test sheets to the recent development of mobile application-based check cashing, this book provides an overview of the features, benefits, costs, and savings of implementing programs for optical data-capture technology or Optical Character Recognition (OCR).

OCR and data capture refers to the practice of bypassing the human task of transcribing data handwritten on paper by electronically converting the handprinted information into formats compatible with database and software applications. Paxton’s wisdom helps justify adopting an OCR system to lower the organizational costs of conducting business as usual. Managers and technical specialists involved in large-scale surveys, data capture, and forms processing will find Paxton’s insights and unique background valuable to their decision making, adoption, and implementation strategies.
