Postal Address Detection from Web Documents

11 years 11 months ago
Postal Address Detection from Web Documents
An approach to postal address detection from webpages is proposed. The webpages are first segmented into text blocks based on their visual similarity. The text content in each block undergoes the recognition process, which employs a syntactic approach. The grammars of almost all possible patterns of postal addresses are built for this purpose. The results of our preliminary experiments on 44 webpages with 56 true addresses show that our approach can detect the postal addresses with a high precision (89.3%) and a low false alarms rate (3.8%).
