Page segmentation using decision integration and wavelet packets

  title={Page segmentation using decision integration and wavelet packets},
  author={Kamran Etemad and David S. Doermann and Rama Chellappa},
A new algorithm for layout-independent document page segmentation is suggested. Text, image and graphics regions in a document image are treated as three diierent \texture" classes. Soft local decisions on small blocks are made using wavelet packet based feature vectors. Segmentation is performed by propagating and integrating soft local decisions over neighboring blocks, within and across scales.The \uncer-tainties" associated with local decisions are reduced as more contextual evidence is… CONTINUE READING
