In this paper we propose a method for segmenting characters in multispectral images of ancient documents. Due to the low quality of the document images the main idea of our study is to combine the multispectral behavior and contextual spatial information. Therefore we utilize a Markov Random Field model using the spectral information of the images and(More)

Multi-spectral imaging for the analysis and preservation of ancient documents has gained high attention in recent years. While readability enhancement is based on the multi-spectral image corpus, foreground-background separation still relies mainly on gray level or color images. In this paper we propose a foreground-background separation algorithm designed(More)
In this study we analyze texture and profile features of painted strokes in order to identify the drawing media used for sketching underdrawings. Underdrawings are preliminary drawings on the panel prepared for paintings and are unseen in the finished work. Cameras working in the near infrared range allow the visualization of underdrawings. Due to the tiny(More)
This paper presents preliminary results of a collaboration of philologists and computer scientists devoted to the recording, investigation and editing of two medieval Slavonic manuscripts of extraordinary importance. The goal of the project lies in the development of techniques and tools for the recording, restoration and analysis of such sources in order(More)
