Automatic extraction of table metadata from digital documents
Tables are used to present, list, summarize, and structure important data in documents. In scholarly articles, they are often used to present the relationships among data and highlight a collection of results obtained from experiments and scientific analysis. In digital libraries, extracting this data automatically and understanding the structure and content of tables are very important to many applications. Automatic identification extraction, and search for the contents of tables can be made more precise with the help of metadata. In this paper, we propose a set of mediumindependent table metadata to facilitate the table indexing, searching, and exchanging. To extract the contents of tables and their metadata, an automatic table metadata extraction algorithm is designed and tested on PDF documents.
