The UCI Scanning Operation started in 1999 as a joint venture with the Department of Facilities and Construction Management(DFCM) scanning drawings and blueprints of State owned buildings into electronic images. Today with sophisticated technology UCI is able to
convert a myriad of dated drawings, blueprints, maps,siesmographs, and documents of any type or size in "better than before" condition and copy to CD or DVD for reference, updating and archiving. UCI scans and records tens of thousands pages of these various documents annually.
UCI provides high-contrast black and white or grayscale scanned raster images from original or blueprint drawings. In the process, UCI edits raster images performing the cleanup of illegible text,unclear line work and other imperfectionsdue to poor source materials or scanner limitations. UCI begins adding additional information to the images such
as buildingchanges, modifications or other information that would be deemed vital in the archiving of building and engineering data.
The transfer of hard copy into electronic data is quickly becoming a top
priority to many State and local governments.
Inmates learning these skills will have an opportunity to earn a livable wage, thus increasing the likelihood that they will not return to prison.
This operation presents an opportunity for both Division of Facilities
Construction and Management and Utah Correctional Industries to have a winning alliance. Together they are reaching a common goal and achieving cost-savings for the taxpayers of Utah.
Participants are exposed to computer literacy. Currently, participants are trained to use AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Land Desktop, AutoCAD MAP, and Revit programs, Capture Perfect and Adobe Professional. Participants also have an opportunity to work in a team setting and learn the skills that it takes to accomplish goals. Working in a business setting teaches participants the business skills and people skills that are key to becoming successful in any work environment.
