Automatic Separation of Compound Figures in Scientific Articles

3 Jun 2016Mario TaschwerOge Marques

Content-based analysis and retrieval of digital images found in scientific articles is often hindered by images consisting of multiple subfigures (compound figures). We address this problem by proposing a method to automatically classify and separate compound figures, which consists of two main steps: (i) a supervised compound figure classifier (CFC) discriminates between compound and non-compound figures using task-specific image features; and (ii) an image processing algorithm is applied to predicted compound images to perform compound figure separation (CFS)...
