Paper Abstract

Tools for visualizing and creating groundtruth and metadata are crucial for document image analysis research. In this paper, we describe TrueViz which is a tool for visualizing and editing groundtruth/metadata for OCR. TrueViz is implemented in the Java programming language and works on various platforms including Windows and Unix. TrueViz reads and stores groundtruth/metadata in XML format, and reads a corresponding image stored in TIFF image file format. Multilingual text editing, display, and search module based on the Unicode representation for text is also provided. This software is being made available free of charge to researchers.
