L_SauvolaBinarize

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTIMGCOR_API L_INT L_SauvolaBinarize(pBitmap, pSauvolaBinarize, uFlags)

Applies the known Sauvola binarization to a bitmap.

Parameters

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap

Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap having Sauvola binarization applied.

pSAUVOLABINARIZE pSauvolaBinarize

A structure that contains the parameters needed to apply Sauvola equation.

L_UINT uFlags

Preserved, should be zero.

Returns

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Sauvola Binarizer converts a colored image into a black and white image using Sauvola equation introduced in https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0031320399000552, without losing important image features such as text. It can be adjusted to be suitable for a specific input device, such as a scanner or camera. This function is especially useful for improving recognition results (such as OCR and Barcode).
