Technical Details

The dataset consists of (1) document images in JPG format, (2) XML ground truth files, and (3) PNG ground truth files.

The XML files contain the ground truth information for text line bounding box coordinates, text line recognition character string and writing direction, script type, and other information.

PNG files are the ground truth for text line detection and text segmentation.

The number of text lines, size of characters in images vary. There are graphical artifacts present in many document images.
