Abstract
We use a propositional language of qualitative rectangle re-
lations to detect the reading order from document images.
Document encoding rules are introduced and, expressed in
the propositional language of rectangles, are used to build a
reading order detector for document images. Results of test-
ing the framework on a collection of heterogeneous document
images are reviewed.
Introduction
We are witnessing a constant growth in the proliferation of
documents in electronic format. However, in our everyday
life we still deal with paper documents. Often, one needs an
electronic version of a paper document. A raw image of the
document is a way of achieving this, but it has a number of
