Document processing

The following diagram illustrates the document processing final layout:

The IDR module performs the first step in the process: The original printed texts are scanned and the resulting images automatically read. If necessary, the IDR primary output is validated in a highly optimised character reading correction module. The output is a text, with different possible formats.

The document processing second phase is information analysis. Here text is break down into relevant information units. If the input file contains more than one document is divided into these documents. Then AFCA performs the document information analysis. The analysis output is formatted taking into account its -usually necessary- inspection and correction. This, together with the existing DB services and editing utilities provide for an easy management of texts and their information analysis.

After document analysis an automatic process codes its output to SGML format.

The dotted area at Diagram 1 refers to possible applications of SGML output. These applications are not part of BiblioTECA, but in one of our test cases we have performed the entire process of conversion of a card collection (35,000 items) from paper cards to UKMARC coding and ISO 2709 packaging.
