Abstract

This paper presents an advanced framework for evaluating the performance of layout analysis methods. It combines efficiency and accuracy by using a special interval based geometric representation of regions. A wide range of sophisticated evaluation measures provides the means for a deep insight into the analysed systems, which goes far beyond simple benchmarking. The support of user-defined profiles allows the tuning for practically any kind of evaluation scenario related to real world applications. The framework has been successfully delivered as part of a major EU-funded project (IMPACT) to evaluate large-scale digitisation projects and has been validated using the dataset from the ICDAR2009 Page Segmentation Competition.
