An Improved Approach for Document Image Mosaicing

Abstract

Now a day many advanced devices are available to perform scanning operation of document images. But sometime those devices fail to scan a large document like newspaper in a single exposure. Here we present a simplest technique to troubleshoot this type of problems. Our proposed method is fully automatic and work properly against any type of document image. Using this technique the large document is captured in parts and mosaicing stitches them into a single image. Mosaicing is performed by pixel value matching of two split images which gives the overlapping region between them. The algorithms are tested on different types of complex document images and we get the desired results. Keywords— Unidirectional scanning, Bidirectional scanning, Overlapping region, Mosaic image, Split image
