ABSTRACT
<p><it>Abstract</it>—Skeletonization algorithms have played an important role in the preprocessing phase of OCR systems. In this paper we report on the performance of 10 recent parallel thinning algorithms from this perspective by gathering statistics from their performance on large sets of data and examining the effects of the different thinning algorithms on an OCR system.</p>
INDEX TERMS
Thinning, parallel algorithms, image processing, character recognition.
