The P2PaLA is a layout analysis tool recognizes structure types on region level and baselines from a page bases on pre-trained models.
The tool was developed by Lorenzo Quirós Díaz at the UPVLC in Valencia, see https://github.com/lquirosd/P2PaLA.
Currently, the recognition is integrated into the Transkribus expert client (TranskribusX) for pre-trained models.
In this process, the P2PaLA tool creates new text-regions with trained structure types and optionally also baselines contained in those regions.
The table shows a detailed informations on all available models.
The column "Structure types" shows the list of region types this model recognizes and the column "Baslelines" shows if this models was also trained to detect baselines.
Currently all pre-trained models are publicly available for all users. In a later stage of the integration, models will be associated with collections and users as with the HTR in Transkribus.
If you have your own dataset for training and recognition, please send us an E-Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), then we can train a model for you.
Please make sure to tag structure types on region level only and avoid overlapping between different regions. Also specify if baseline detection should be trained too (which may only make sense for larger datsets). For structure type recognition, a training set of about 50-100 pages should be enough to generate a decent model, depending of course on the complexity of your structural layouts. Please note, that the tool can only recognize structure types that are in any way visually or positionally distinguishable on a page. Also note that P2PaLA is currently not a production-ready tool, thus please don't expect 'perfect' results.
