Paper Abstract

This paper describes a technique for local thresholding of large digital images, obtained from line drawings of low quality. It is based on two main steps. First, the gray level image is thresholded with a global value, to discard those pixels which surely belong to a non significant background. A suitable run representation is used to compress the resulting image. Then, for each run, a set of connected runs is used to compute a local thresholding value. This threshold is applied to the pixels of the current run, to obtain the final binary image.
