Page segmentation and segmentation evaluation

Project description


This repository aims to provide a number of OCR-D compliant processors for layout analysis and evaluation.



In your Python virtual environment, run:

pip install ocrd_segment


Contains processors for various tasks:

  • exporting segment images (including results from preprocessing like cropping/masking, deskewing, dewarping or binarization) along with polygon coordinates and metadata:
  • importing layout segmentations from other formats:
  • post-processing or repairing layout segmentations:
    • ocrd-segment-repair (validity and consistency of all coordinates; also, for regions, reduce overlaps/redundancy between neighbours, and/or simplify polygons, and/or shrink to the alpha shape of foreground contours)
    • ocrd-segment-project (remake segment coordinates into the concave hull / alpha shape of their constituents)
    • ocrd-segment-replace-original (rebase all segments on cropped+deskewed border frame as new full page)
    • ocrd-segment-replace-page (2 input fileGrps; overwrite segmentation below page of first fileGrp by all segments of second fileGrp, rebasing all coordinates; "inverse" of replace-original)
    • ocrd-segment-replace-text (insert text below page from single-segment text files; "inverse" of extract-*)
  • comparing different layout segmentations:
  • pattern-based segmentation (input file groups N=1, based on a PAGE template, e.g. from Aletheia, and some XSLT or Python to apply it to the input file group)
    • ocrd-segment-via-template :construction: (unpublished)
  • data-driven segmentation (input file groups N=1, based on a statistical model, e.g. Neural Network)
    • ocrd-segment-via-model :construction: (unpublished)

For detailed behaviour, see --help on each processor CLI. For detailed description on input/output and parameters, see ocrd-tool.json or --dump-json on each processor CLI.
