Indexing of Historical Document Images: Ad Hoc Dewarping Technique for Handwritten Text
Abstract: This work presents a research project, named XDOCS, aimed at extending to a much wider audience the possibility to access a variety of historical documents published on the web. The paper presents an overview of the indexing process that will be used to achieve the goal, focusing on the adopted dewarping technique. The proposed dewarping approach performs its task with the help of a transformation model which maps the projection of a curved surface to a 2D rectangular area. The novelty introduced with this work regards the possibility of applying dewarping to document images which contain both handwritten and typewritten text.
