  • Publication number: 20150067465
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a handwritten document processing device includes an input/output unit and a processing unit. The input/output unit acquires sets of stroke data of a handwritten document. The processing unit is capable of implementing a first processing operation of deriving table data based on the sets of stroke data and supplying the table data to the input/output unit. The table data include first and second ruled line data, and first cell data. The first cell data include a shape pattern. A length in a second direction of a cell shape and an inter-ruled line distance along the second direction are independently modifiable. The first ruled line generated based on the first ruled line data extends in a first direction. The second ruled line generated based on the second ruled line data extends in the first direction. The second direction intersects the first direction.

  • Patent number: 8938667
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method and system for grouping columns of data into different levels for subsequent multiple level operations. The method comprises the steps of providing sub-columns within a single table column, said table columns and each of the sub-columns having an associated header; and using multiple dummy tables and displaying them separately on different locations, one of the dummy tables including one or more of the associated headers. The preferred embodiment of the invention uses a tool, referred to as the Jtable class, which is used to display and edit regular two-dimensional tables of cells. The present invention is able to support multilevel headers and column spanning by using multiple tables and displaying them separately. Preferably, this is done using another tool, GridBagLayout, which is associated with Jpanel tool.

    Abstract: Various embodiments of systems and methods for extrapolating tabular structure to facilitate manipulation of elements in the freeform document are described herein. The freeform document includes an unstructured canvas providing users the ability to place one or more elements in the canvas. A primary column is determined by the selection of at least one element in the freeform document. Further, one or more secondary columns in the freeform document corresponding to the primary column are determined. A tabular structure in the freeform document is extrapolated based on the determined primary column and the one or more secondary columns to facilitate manipulation of elements in the freeform document, such as reordering, resizing and deleting the one or more elements, and inserting one or more new elements in the freeform document.

  • Patent number: 8671354
    Abstract: A computer based method visually highlights achievements of sports teams or players in displays of statistical data, such as statistical tables, that represent the performance of sports teams or players. The achievements to be highlighted may include multiple-game streaks and single-game achievements. Multiple-game streaks occur when a team or player meets a performance objective in multiple consecutive games. Such streaks are highlighted in displays of statistical data by visually emphasizing the data values that form the streak. Visual emphasis is achieved by, for example, displaying a visual indicator, such as a line, adjacent to the data values. A single-game achievement is highlighted by visually emphasizing the data value that represents the achievement, so that users can quickly identify single-game achievements in statistical tables. Details about the streak or achievement may be displayed when the user selects or passes a mouse pointer over one of the data values or over the visual indicator.

    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for comparing blank forms represented in a digital format to digitized filled-in forms are described. Different errors are attributed different weights when attempting to correlate regions of blank and filled-in forms. Foreground pixels in the blank form which are not found in a corresponding portion of a filled-in form are attributed greater error significance than foreground pixels, e.g., pixels which may correspond to added text, found in the filled-in form which correspond to a background pixel value in the blank form. A virtual filled-in form including content, e.g., pixel values, from the filled-in form is generated from the content of the filled-in form and pixel value location mapping information determined from comparing the blank and filled-in forms. Various analysis is performed on a block basis, but in some embodiments the final pixel mapping to the virtual form is performed on a pixel by pixel rather than a block basis.

    Abstract: To determine a table structure, a spatially ordered sequence of rectangular cells (42) disposed in a two dimensional region is derived. The ordered sequence of rectangular cells is parsed in accordance with a two-dimensional structural grammar (54) having terminal elements corresponding to cells and non-terminal elements corresponding to structural relationship operators. The parsing produces a grammatical expression (52) with the cells represented by terminal elements and structural relationships represented by non-terminal elements.
