Abstract : Automatic processing of images of steles is a challenging problem due to the variation in their structures and body text characteristics. In this paper, area Voronoi diagram is used to represent the neighborhood of connected components in stele images containing Nom characters. Body text region is then extracted from stele images by the selection of appropriate adjacent Voronoi regions based on the information about the thickness of neighboring connected components. Experimental results show that the proposed method is highly accurate and robust to various types of stele.
