Title
(EN) COMPARISON OF DOCUMENTS CONTAINING GRAPHIC ELEMENTS
(FR) COMPARAISON DE DOCUMENTS CONTENANT DES ELEMENTS GRAPHIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A system and methods for comparing a plurality of documents comprising graphic elements is described. Attributes of graphic elements amongst the documents are examined to identify sufficiently similar graphic elements. A merged document can be automatically produced based on the comparison. Graphic elements in the resulting document may be associated with a document layer. Methods may advantageously be applied to a plurality of documents representing different versions of a document.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et des méthodes pour comparer une pluralité de documents comprenant des éléments graphiques. Des attributs d'élément graphique appartenant aux documents susmentionnés sont examinés pour identifier des éléments graphiques suffisamment analogues. Un document fusionné peut être automatiquement produit en fonction de cette comparaison. Les éléments graphiques du document obtenu peuvent être associés à une couche de document. Les méthodes de l'invention peuvent être avantageusement appliquées à une pluralité de documents représentant différentes versions d'un document.
