ATHENA

ATHENA (Automatic Text Height ExtractioN for the Analysis of old handwritten manuscripts) has developedĀ a layout analysis method to perform automatic text height estimation, even in the case of very noisy and damaged handwritten manuscripts. The effectiveness of the method has been demonstrated on large corpus of medieval manuscripts, with different writing styles, and affected by other uncontrollable factors, such as ink bleed-through, background noise, and overtyping text lines.
