It extracts each ligature’s geometry from that input image and generates a polar map which is RTS invariant. This polar image is analyzed in the frequency domain. The Fourier coefficients are obtained from the so obtained frequencies. These coefficients are then used as features to recognize a specific ligature. Nastalique Font of Urdu is in progress and more than 1500 ligatures of different sizes have been tested using the technique with an accuracy of 92%.It is being developed as a Final Year Project and it is still in progress.
