Scanning a map that has been folded? (NOT GRASS SPECIFIC)

I once worked in a blueprint reproduction shop.  We used a 
vacuum table to flatten articles with creases that needed 
to be reproduced.

You may be able to find one locally that could make a reproduction 
of your map/s that would scan well.  

I would be reluctant to 'iron' a paper map, fearing that it would 
skew the printed image introducing other irregularities.

I have several folded maps to scan and am thinking of ironing  them but I would consider  other options (including software). Suggestion for iron settings are also appreciated (steam or dry high or low) Searching the net returned no hits.
