2005/009 - Optimized XY-Cut for Determining a Page Reading Order
ICDAR, International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition, Seoul, Korea, Aug. 29-Sept. 1st, 2005.
In this paper we present a method for determining the human reading order of the layout elements of a document page. We propose a computationally tractable optimization approach to the problem. We also report on the performance of the method and discuss it in light of related work.
