Abstract
Skewing of the scanned image is an inevitable process and its detection is an important issue for document recognition systems. The skew of the scanned document image specifies the deviation of the text lines from the horizontal or vertical axis. This paper surveys methods to detect this skew in two steps, dimension reduction and skew estimation. These methods include projection profile analysis, Hough Transform, nearest neighbor clustering, cross-correlation, piece-wise painting algorithm, piece-wise covering by parallelogram, transition counts, morphology.
