A fast algorithm for skew detection of document images using morphology

  title={A fast algorithm for skew detection of document images using morphology},

Any paper document when converted to electronic form through standard digitizing devices, like scanners, is subject to a small tilt or skew. Meanwhile, a de-skewed document allows a more compact representation of its components, particularly text objects, such as words, lines, and paragraphs, where they can be represented by their rectilinear bounding boxes. This simplified representation leads to more efficient, robust, as well as simpler algorithms for document image analysis including… CONTINUE READING
