GEDI: Groundtruthing Environment for Document Images (Software)
GEDI is a generic annotation tool that assists you in ground truthing scanned text documents. Its basic structure involves two types of files, an Image file, and a corresponding .xml file in GEDI Format . A series of image files stored in the same directory (folder) can be opened simultaneously and the interface maintains a one to one correspondence with XML files of the same name, in same or another directory. When you begin ground truthing an image, you can configure the interface to allocation the creation of different types of zones, each of which may have a custom set of “attributes”.
GEDI is available free of charge to the research community and continues to be developed.
