HENNIG, A. and SHERKAT, N., 2002. Exploiting zoning based on approximating splines in cursive script recognition. Pattern Recognition, 35 (2), pp. 445-454. ISSN 0031-3203Full text not available from this repository.
Because of its complexity, handwriting recognition has to exploit many sources of information to be successful, e.g. the handwriting zones. Variability of zone-lines, however, requires a more flexible representation than traditional horizontal or linear methods. The proposed method therefore employs approximating cubic splines. Using entire lines of text rather than individual words is shown to improve the zoning accuracy, especially for short words. The new method represents an improvement over existing methods in terms of range of applicability, zone-line precision and zoning-classification accuracy. Application to several problems of handwriting recognition is demonstrated and evaluated.
