Document image characterization using a multiresolution analysis of the texture: application to old documents

Nicholas Journet, Jean-Yves Ramel, Rémy Mullot, Véronique Eglin
2008 International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition  
This characterization is carried out with the help of a multi-resolution study of the textures contained in the images of the document.  ...  Thus, by extracting five features linked to the frequencies and to the orientations in the different areas of a page, it is possible to extract and compare elements of high semantic level without expressing  ...  The only variations of gray levels are due to the digitization or to the deterioration of paper or ink. One is then very far from the grayscale variations that are to be found in natural images.  ...
