Abstract
A skew-estimation method using straight lines in document images is presented. Unlike conventional approaches exploiting the properties of text, we formulate the skew-estimation problem as an estimation task using straight lines in images and focus on robust and accurate line detection. To be precise, we adopt a block-based edge detector followed by a progressive line detector to take clues from a variety of sources such as text lines, boundaries of figures/tables, vertical/horizontal separators, and boundaries of textblocks. Extensive experiments on the datasets of skewed images and competition results reveal that the proposed method works robustly and yields accurate skew-estimation results.
