Proceedings of the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition, ICDAR


Architectural and Construction industry deals with many high dimensional paper documents. Architects assign different symbols for referencing other documents for details of a particular section of a large project. The general contractor (GC) or the sub-contractor (SC) will go through these drawings and then shuffle through a pile of documents to navigate to the referenced sheet by reading the information from these symbols. The time taken will increase manifolds if the number of such references is very high. We have proposed a hyperlink based method to automate these manual tasks with a good accuracy and efficiency. This work has strong application potential in the construction industry for aiding in the deadline intensive projects.
