Data Capture Approaches – Best Practices to Obtain Value

There are several ways for data capture applications to classify pages, find fields, and extract data. All data capture packages employs the following to recognize information on scanned images:

– Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
– Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) for hand-print
– Optical Mark Recognition (OMR)
– Barcode technologies

Locating and Identifying Values

For the purposes of this discussion, templates are static and definitions are dynamic. The methods used to classify and locate information vary slightly from package to package, but there are four primary approaches:

1. Templates
2. Iterative Templates
3. Data Keyword Pairs
4. Combination of Iterative Templates and Data Keywords Pairs
