Document Analysis
In several sectors and areas of the knowledge, documents are present. According to the purpose, these documents have different structures. Some have printed text only, other have printed text and handwritten mixed. However, there are those with more complex structures containing, among other elements, tables and figures. Document Analysis is an application of Machine Vision and aims at the identification and recognition of the  elements of documents automatically.

We developed a system that distinguish automatically printed and handwritten words in images representative of documents (forms in general). All material generated in this work is available in the downloads section, where also we offer a form image database (with ground truth) used during the experiments, to be used by other interested researchers.
