In this paper, new methods were developed to successfully identify Chinese handwriting characters. These methods are based on features extraction as compared and matched with HCL2000 database [1]. Several algorithms were applied for binarization, smoothing, noise reduction and thinning to an image of a single Chinese character. Then the image is given to a structural feature extracting algorithm, which transforms that character into an undirected graph with unique coordinates of all nodes. The… CONTINUE READING
