Sampling translates data into distinct measurable units (i.e. the pages of a book, pixels, etc) (p. 28). 2) Quantization: recorded data is “assigned a numerical value drawn from a defined range (such as 0-255 in the case of 8-bit greyscale image)” (p. 28) Today’s scanning technology allows a user to convert a paper document into a digital representation. The scanner digitizes the paper document into a series of numbers. The computer deciphers the numbers into a representation of the document on a computer screen.
