  • We present a technique for segmenting pen strokes into lines and arcs. The technique uses pen speed information to help infer the segmentation intended by the drawer. To begin, a set of candidate segment points is identified. This set includes speed minima below a threshold computed from the average pen speed. It also includes curvature maxima at which the pen speed is again below a threshold. The ink between each pair of consecutive segment points is then classified as either a line or arc… CONTINUE READING
