How ABBYY FineReader Engine recognizes data in drawings

    Many of us remember from school drawing lessons such signs that needed to be drawn on each sheet in the lower right corner. From them you could always quickly find the drawing you need in the folder. Quickly? Well, while we are talking about drawings that fit into one folder, yes. And if this is a whole cabinet of technical documentation?

    Our partners from CSoft company are engaged in consulting and implementation of complex solutions in the field of design systems and by the nature of their activity they are faced with such “cabinets” constantly. Their programs are designed for scanning and processing raster images, as well as subsequent input of the received data into the enterprise information systems or other applications. They allow you to work with raster images of drawings, maps, diagrams and other graphic materials of builders and designers.

    In practice, most of the archival documentation that needs to be digitized is usually done manually and on old media, so СSoft specialists have integrated ABBYY FineReader Engine recognition technology, which can easily cope with such documents. Our solution was included in three Сsoft software products - RasterID, Spotlight and RasterDesk - and was called ABBYY FineReader Plugin.

    After ABBYY FineReader Plugin recognizes the text in the title block of the drawing, the received information is transmitted to an external database or document management system to form a card of a scanned document, with which it can be quickly found to solve work problems. It doesn’t matter how the title block was filled in - by printing or by hand (in block letters). Our technologies make it possible to recognize both in more than 100 languages ​​and are applicable not only for working with standard A4 printed documents, but also for processing complex and non-standard documentation. The ABBYY FineReader Engine toolkit allows the developer to create applications that can be used to process not just individual image areas, but even individual characters.
