Abstract .
The explosive growth of the World Wide Web has resulted in a distributed database consisting of hundreds of millions of documents. While existing search engines index a page based on the text that is readily extracted from its HTML encoding, an increasing amount of the information on the Web is embedded in images. This situation presents a new and exciting challenge for the fields of document analysis and information retrieval, as WWW image text is typically rendered in color and at very low spatial resolutions. In this paper, we survey the results of several years of our work in the area. For the problem of locating text in Web images, we describe a procedure based on clustering in color space followed by a connected-components analysis that seems promising. For character recognition, we discuss techniques using polynomial surface fitting and “fuzzy” n-tuple classifiers. Also presented are the results of several experiments that demonstrate where our methods perform well and where more work needs to be done. We conclude with a discussion of topics for further research. Keywords: document analysis, information retrieval, optical character recognition, WWW image text 1. Introduction Traditionally, the field of document analysis has focused on the translation of information contained in paper documents to an electronic form. The myriad of problems that arise in the process have been studied for decades. Some are widely accepted to be difficult, while others have been addressed satisfactorily, at least in certain special cases. Many of the problems still considered open have nonetheless received a good deal of attention in the literature, and are well-understood, if not yet solved. A recent development of note, however, is the explosive growth of the World Wide Web (WWW) and the rapid proliferation of electronic documents it has fostered. Since 1993, the number ofWWWservers has been increasing at an exponential rate, currently doubling every six months; it now totals over 7,000,000 (Zakon). The popular Alta Vista search engine indexes 250,000,000 Web pages, and processes tens of millions of HTTP requests each day (Alta Vista, Search EngineWatch). While it is now generally acknowledged, even by members of the Web community, that electronic documents will never totally supplant paper ones (WordWideWeb Consortium), there are compelling reasons to consider whether the analysis techniques originally developed for paper documents might have applications in the online world.
