In document image analysis, segmentation is the task that identifies the regions of a document. The increasing number of applications of document analysis requires a good knowledge of the available technologies. This survey highlights the variety of the approaches that have been proposed for document image segmentation since 2008. It provides a clear typology of documents and of document image segmentation algorithms. We also discuss the technical limitations of these algorithms, the way they
