Text Recognition in Graffiti Images

Status: taken
Supervisor: Sebastian Zambanini

Problem Statement

The INDIGO project aims to document and analyze the graffiti along Vienna’s Donaukanal. However, indexing graffiti images by written text is a time-consuming task. Hence, a system which provides automatic guesses for written text would be highly beneficial.


The goal of this work is to explore and examine methods that can be used to recognize text in graffiti images.
