Converting English Hand-Drawn Chars74k Data to JSON

By Allison Parrish

This is just a quick notebook to convert the stroke trajectories of the hand-drawn English letters in the Chars74k dataset to JSON. See the notebook for more details.

You can download the JSON-converted files directly. The JSON object maps each letter in the dataset (0-9, a-z, A-Z) to a list of letterforms (55 for each letter), which in turn are lists of strokes, which are lists of [x, y] coordinates for each point in the stroke.

  • Regular
  • Normalized (translated so that each letterform is centered on the center of the strokes' bounding box)

Here's an example of the data in use.
