Decomposing Document Images by Heuristic Search
Abstract. Document decomposition is a basic but crucial step for many document related applications. This paper proposes a novel approach to decompose document images into zones. It first generates overlapping zone hypotheses based on generic visual features. Then, each candidate zone is evaluated quantitatively by a learned generative zone model. We infer the optimal set of non-overlapping zones that covers a given document image by a heuristic search algorithm. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is very robust to document structure variation and noise. Note: the 2nd author is the correspondence author.
