News

  • We received some questions in regard to the new groundtruth for the test set of Total-Text. Here is an update. We do not release a new version of the test set groundtruth because

     1) there is no need of standardising the length of the groundtruth vertices for testing purpose, it was proposed to facilitate training only, and
     2) a new version of groundtruth would make the previous benchmarks irrelevant.
    

Do contact us if you think there is a valid reason to require the new groundtruth for the test set, we shall discuss about it.

  • TOTAL-TEXT is a word-level based English curve text dataset. If you are interested in text-line based dataset with both English and Chinese instances, we highly recommend you to refer SCUT-CTW1500. In addition, a Robust Reading Challenge on Arbitrary-Shaped Text (RRC-ArT), which is extended from Total-Text and SCUT-CTW1500, was held at ICDAR2019 to stimulate more innovative ideas on the arbitrary-shaped text reading task. Congratulations to all winners and challengers. The technical report of ArT can be found on at this https URL.

Important Announcement

Total-Text and SCUT-CTW1500 are now part of the training set of the largest curved text dataset - ArT (Arbitrary-Shaped Text dataset). In order to retain the validity of future benchmarking on Total-Text datasets, the test-set images of Total-Text should be removed (with the corresponding ID provided HERE) from the ArT dataset shall one intend to leverage the extra training data from the ArT dataset. We count on the trust of the research community to perform such removal operation to attain the fairness of the benchmarking.

Table Ranking

  • The results from recent papers on Total-Text dataset are listed below where P=Precision, R=Recall & F=F-score.
  • If your result is missing or incorrect, please do not hesisate to contact us.
  • The baseline scores are based on our proposed [Poly-FRCNN-3] in this folder.

1For the results of TextField and CTD, the improved versions of their original paper were used, and this explains why the performance is better.

2For Mask-TextSpotter, the relatively poor performance reported in their paper was due to a bug in the input reading module (which was fixed recently). The authors were informed about this issue.

Description

In order to facilitate a new text detection research, we introduce Total-Text dataset (IJDAR)(ICDAR-17 paper) (presentation slides), which is more comprehensive than the existing text datasets. The Total-Text consists of 1555 images with more than 3 different text orientations: Horizontal, Multi-Oriented, and Curved, one of a kind.
