Abstract

This paper describes an algorithm to classify each given document zone into one of nine classes and provides a protocol for its performance evaluation. The classification scheme uses an optimized binary decision tree and Viterbi algorithm for HMM to find the optimal solution. Our algorithm was trained and tested on a total of 24,177 zones within the 1600 images from UWCDROM III database. Its accuracy rate is 98.45% with a mean false alarm rate of 0.50%.
