Keywords: Image segmentation, Histogram based Algorithm, Edge Detection algorithm Preprocessing, Image acquisition



Abstract: The image segmentation is typically used to trace the object and boundaries such as line and curves in an image. The segmentation of the text reliability is necessary to perform the classification and Recognition. The main aim of segmentation is to partition the document image into various homogeneous regions such as text block, image block, line and word. In this paper we have introduced a clustering based neighbor method and Direction based line segmentation method for the image segmentation. First, Read the input image and remove the noise. Second, apply the top down segmentation approach to segment a document image into text lines. Third, the result of segmentation is set of segments that collectively cover entire images. *
