IMPACT Final Conference- IMPACT Evaluation tools, ground truth and datasets
Stefan Pletschacher joined us today from the Pattern Recognition & Image Analysis Research (PRImA) group at the University of Salford and revealed an intriguing set of freely available performance evaluation tools for image enhancement, segmentation and OCR outputs created as part of IMPACT. We were also introduced to the IMPACT dataset, a searchable repository of over 700,000 images from 10 participating project libraries, arranged into various working and demonstrative sets which showcase specific OCR challenges, such as typewritten material or image groups dedicated to dewarping.
For more information on these tools including Aletheia, an Advanced Document Layout and Text Ground-Truthing System for Production Environments, visit: http://tools.primaresearch.org/tools/primaweb/tool.php
