title Document Analysis: A Way To Integrate Existing Paper Information In Architectural Databases
source Second Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture & Urban Planning (Vaals, the Netherlands), August 15-19, 1994
summary In any domain, the use of information systems leads to the problem of converting the existing archives of paper documents into a format suitable the computerized system. In this area, most attention has probably been given to structured document analysis, i.e. the automated analysis of business documents such as letters, forms, documentation, manuals etc., including the well-known area of character recognition. But document analysis is also a powerful tool in technical domains such as architecture, where large quantities of drawings of various kinds are available on paper. In this paper, we shortly present the state of the art in technical drawing analysis and propose some techniques suitable for the specific application of the conversion from paper to architectural databases.
