Crowdsourcing chart digitizer: task design and quality control for making legacy open data machine-readable

Satoshi Oyama, Yukino Baba, Ikki Ohmukai, Hiroaki Dokoshi, Hisashi Kashima
2016 International Journal of Data Science and Analytics  
This paper describes the first unified framework for converting legacy open data in chart images into a machine-readable and reusable format by using crowdsourcing.  ...  However, such software is designed for manual use and thus requires human intervention, making it unsuitable for automatically extracting data from a large number of chart images.  ...  Acknowledgments SO was supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (No. 15K1214805) from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.  ...

From one star to three stars: Upgrading legacy open data using crowdsourcing

Satoshi Oyama, Yukino Baba, Ikki Ohmukai, Hiroaki Dokoshi, Hisashi Kashima
2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA)  
This paper describes the first unified framework for converting legacy open data in image format into a machinereadable and reusable format by using crowdsourcing.  ...  Despite recent open data initiatives in many countries, a significant percentage of the data provided is in nonmachine-readable formats like image format rather than in a machine-readable electronic format  ...  We proposed using crowdsourcing to digitize chart images and introduced a task design for crowd workers.  ...
