public class HorizontalRunLengthSmoothing : BaseInPlacePartialFilter
The class implements horizontal run length smoothing algorithm, which is described in: K.Y. Wong, R.G. Casey and F.M. Wahl, "Document analysis system," IBM J. Res. Devel., Vol. 26, NO. 6,111). 647-656, 1982.
Unlike the original description of this algorithm, this implementation must be applied to inverted binary images containing document, i.e. white text on black background. So this implementation fills horizontal black gaps between white pixels.
The filter accepts 8 bpp grayscale images, which are supposed to be binary inverted documents.
// create filter HorizontalRunLengthSmoothing hrls = new HorizontalRunLengthSmoothing( 32 ); // apply the filter hrls.ApplyInPlace( image );
