Simple algorithm page layout analysis
- 146 Downloads
An algorithm for page layout analysis (segmentation) is suggested in the paper. It allows whitespace between text blocks to be detected on a document page. The algorithm could be used in document analysis and recognition problems. In particular, it can be used for column recognition in multicolumn text and tables. The suggested algorithm is quite simple for implementation.
