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

Good suggestion David,

But be sure you place a towel between the iron and the
map (like a bath towel).  You wouldn't want your map to
scorch or burst into flames.  :-)   Hope that helps as well.

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.
