The reconstruction of destroyed paper documents became of more interest during the last years. On the one hand it (often) occurs that documents are destroyed by mistake while on the other hand this type of application is relevant in the fields of forensics and archeology, e.g., for evidence or restoring ancient documents. Within this paper, we present a new approach for restoring cross-cut shredded text documents, i.e., documents which were mechanically cut into rectangular shreds of (almost… CONTINUE READING
