An Active Contour Based Method for Image Binarization: Application to Degraded Historical Document Images

Abstract

Old document images often suffer from different types of degradation that render their binarization a challenging task. In this paper, a new binarization algorithm for degraded document images is presented. The method is based on active contours evolving according to intrinsic geometric measures of the document image, Nib lack's thresholding is also used to… (More)
