Classification of Text and Image Areas in Digitized Documents for Mobile Devices

Abstract

Post processing and automatic interpretation of images plays an increasingly important role in the mobile area. Both for the efficient compression and for the automatic evaluation of text, it is useful to store text content as textual information rather than as graphics information. For this purpose pictures from magazines are recorded with the camera of a smartphone and classified according to text and image areas. In this work established desktop procedures are presented and analyzed in terms of their applications on mobile devices. Based on these methods, an approach for image segmentation and classification on mobile devices is developed, taking into account the limited resources of these mobile devices.
