A Methodology for Evaluating Algorithms for Table Understanding in PDF Documents

Abstract:
This paper presents a methodology for the evaluation of table understanding algorithms for PDF documents. The evaluation takes into account three major tasks: table detection, table structure recognition and functional analysis. We provide a general and flexible output model for each task along with corresponding evaluation metrics and methods. We also present a methodology for collecting and ground-truthing PDF documents based on consensus-reaching principles and provide a publicly available ground-truthed dataset.
