Sample Results

Overview

PyTorch implementation for CRAFT text detector that effectively detect text area by exploring each character region and affinity between characters. The bounding box of texts are obtained by simply finding minimum bounding rectangles on binary map after thresholding character region and affinity scores.

Updates

13 Jun, 2019: Initial update 20 Jul, 2019: Added post-processing for polygon result 28 Sep, 2019: Added the trained model on IC15 and the link refiner

Getting started

Install dependencies

Requirements

  • PyTorch>=0.4.1
  • torchvision>=0.2.1
  • opencv-python>=3.4.2
  • check requiremtns.txt
pip install -r requirements.txt

Training

The code for training is not included in this repository, and we cannot release the full training code for IP reason.

Test instruction using pretrained model

  • Download the trained models
Model name Used datasets Languages Purpose Model Link
General SynthText, IC13, IC17 Eng + MLT For general purpose Click
IC15 SynthText, IC15 Eng For IC15 only Click
LinkRefiner CTW1500 - Used with the General Model Click
  • Run with pretrained model
python test.py --trained_model=[weightfile] --test_folder=[folder path to test images]

The result image and socre maps will be saved to ./result by default.

  • --low_text: text low-bound score
  • --link_threshold: link confidence threshold
  • --cuda: use cuda for inference (default:True)
  • --canvas_size: max image size for inference
  • --mag_ratio: image magnification ratio
  • --poly: enable polygon type result
  • --show_time: show processing time
  • --test_folder: folder path to input images
  • --refine: use link refiner for sentense-level dataset
  • --refiner_model: pretrained refiner model
