Image classifier utilizing class distribution maps for character recognition

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5825925.

An image classifier, which performs character recognition, receives input images and assigns each input image to one of a plurality of image classes. The image classifier includes plural class distribution maps, each based on a plurality of features evaluated on training images, and each representing those feature values that occur at least once among the training images belonging to the corresponding class. The image classifier further includes means for constructing a test map by evaluating the plurality of features on the input image. The image classifier further includes means for comparing the test map to the class distribution maps in order to identify which one of the class distribution maps has the least distance to the test map. At least one of the features is defined according to a rule that relates to the shapes of images of at least one image class.
