hi. we have an ASP ecommerce site and sell parts for [url removed, login to view] are looking for a solution to upgrade the site so customers can click on parts diagrams and buy the part they click on. this is simple coords mapping but what we require are ideas to make the creation of these webpage simple.
we have numerous suppliers with many parts diagram pdf files. the files are usually around 30 pages of exploded diagrams with parts listed 1- 30 etc followed by the next page being a table of detail: item number, description, part number and qnty reqd. ie: 1 spring 798789 2. we have some desktop software that will extract the images to a file (mixture of vecor and rastor) and more software that will extact the text to xl. we manually edit the data to add machine model name and image name to the data - ie: bigmachine [url removed, login to view] 1 spring 798789 2. we now have some bespoke software that will reed this xl sheet and allow the fast manual creation of hotspots on the image. the result is a csv file with the data and hotspot coords ready for a web database.
we are looking for the ASP pages to upload this data to our database and then display the data on our site. these new parts diagrams must be related to existing machines on our site.
the holy grail would be a solution to include a better solution to extract the initial information from the pdf as well as the ASP pages to display the pages on our website.
please enquire with your ideas and costings for just the ASP work or the ASP work and pdf extraction automation as well.
please enquire with serious replies not "cut and paste" offers.
