Abstract

Features derived from Gabor wavelet filters are used to reconstruct the skeletons of handwritten digits. The features are linked into strokes which are suitable as input to character recognisers. Experimental results are given to show the effectiveness of the stroke-linking algorithm as a thinning method, producing well-connected skeletons for broken and noisy digits.
