About this Reference Work

The Handbook of Document Image Processing and Recognition is a comprehensive resource on the latest methods and techniques in document image processing and recognition. Each chapter provides a clear overview of the topic followed by the state of the art of techniques used – including elements of comparison between them – along with supporting references to archival publications, for those interested in delving deeper into topics addressed. Rather than favor a particular approach, the text enables the reader to make an informed decision for their specific problems.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This edited compendium of chapters represents the largest effort to date to bring together the breadth and depth of image processing research for document text extraction, segmentation of document image into picture and text zones, and general optical character recognition (OCR) of the international family of foreign languages. … will appeal to the widest audience possible, including academicians, practitioners, library science and legal professionals, and all who are interested in the efficient storage and retrieval of vast numbers of documents.” (R. Goldberg, Computing Reviews, October, 2014)
