An adaptive water flow model for binarization of degraded document images


In this paper, we present an adaptive water flow model for the binarization of degraded document images. We regard an image surface as a three-dimensional terrain and pour water on it. The water finds the valleys and fills them. Our algorithm controls the rainfall process, pouring the water, in such a way that the water fills up to half of the valley’s… (More)
