A multi-platform and open-source software able to create synthetic image documents with ground truthDownload
Add bleed-through, ink degradation, adaptive blur, holes and other defects on your document images and use them for performance evaluation or retraining
Create virtually unlimited amounts of different ground-truthed synthetic document images based on a small number of real images.
Use the user interface or create your own C++ code to create synthetic data.

DocCreator: A New Software for Creating Synthetic Ground-Truthed Document Images.
J. Imaging 2017, 3, 62.
Physical degradation due to ageing, storage conditions or poor quality of printing materials may be present on documents. DocCreator currently proposes seven degradation models : bleed-through, ink degradation, adaptive blur, holes, paper deformation, ...
With DocCreator create synthetic documents and corresponding XML ground truth that mimic real ones. Images created with DocCreator have already been used in many DIAR contexts: text/background/image pixel classification; staff removal; and handwritten character recognition. See the list of scientific publications where DocCreactor has been used.
