Symbol Recognition: Current Advances and Perspectives

  title={Symbol Recognition: Current Advances and Perspectives},
  author={Josep Llad{\'o}s and Ernest Valveny and Gemma S{\'a}nchez and Enric Mart{\'i}},
The recognition of symbols in graphic documents is an intensive research activity in the community of pattern recognition and document analysis. A key issue in the interpretation of maps, engineering drawings, diagrams, etc. is the recognition of domain dependent symbols according to a symbol database. In this work we first review the most outstanding symbol recognition methods from two different points of view: application domains and pattern recognition methods. In the second part of the… CONTINUE READING
