openDias - Project Portal

The openDias project is an Open Source offering, to bring a professional document scanning and storage utility for the home user. OpenDias (Document Imaging Archive System) provides document storage and a document work-flow application to the home or small business user.

Store all your letters, bills, statements, etc. in a convenient, safe, and easily retrievable way.

Image documents using a scanner (SANE device), or import PDF, ODF or plain images. Use OCR on these documents to extract the raw text. Then assign a title, a date, tags and other user data for easy indexing, and later searching, browsing, updating or printing.
