In the framework of the deployment of the digitization projects of the paper documentation that must enter the information systems of the Public Administrations, a series of decisions must be taken that the reference regulations do not clearly specify. One of these decisions is to determine what the specific configuration parameters of the digitizing machinery should be.

Despite the fact that the regulations (National Security Scheme, National Interoperability Scheme and their technical standards) establish a reference framework, each organization will have to end up deciding what the specific proposal should be.

To this end, a proposal is made for the values that the digitization parameters should have, taking into account both this regulation and the Digitization Guide that the Generalitat de Catalunya makes available to Public Administrations:

  • Resolution: 300 pp
  • Digitization in color when the documents are, and if not in black and white or grayscale.
  • Bit depth: 8-bit gray, 24-bit color
  • Fidelity: Respect the geometry of the original document in terms of volume and proportions, without adding characters or graphics.
  • Compression: No compression
  • Format: PDF
