Abstract

Data base is important as it help conducting research more effectively. This paper proposes a database for degraded Arabic historical manuscripts dating to the Islamic and ancient Arabic eras. The documents in the database exhibit different types of degradation such as smears, uneven illumination, contrast variation, blur, deteriorated paper, bleed-through, faded ink or faint characters, and thin or weak text. There are three documents for each type of degradation, and there is a ground truth image of each document for use in later performance measurements and verification. This database aims to facilitate a range of image processing experiments on Arabic degraded documents.
