Document Image Binarization Platform (DIB Platform)
Binarization algorithms, quality, time-performance, assessment, scanned documents, camera documents
This site provides an assessment of the quality-time performance of binarization algorithms.
Over 5.5M synthetic, 708 photographed and 116 "real-world" documents are used in such assessment. The results of binarization are shown in statistical tables together with time elapsed. The binary images may be obtained on-demand. The current version of the platforms presents the results of 20 "classical" global binarization algorithms. The platform is being extended to include more recent algorithms.
