Introduction #

Released 2021-09-05 Β·Victor Dibia

Authors introduce SignverOD: A Dataset Signature Object Detection, a curated dataset of 2576 scanned document images with 7103 bounding box annotations, across 4 categories (signature, initials, redaction, date). SignverOD cover a diverse set of document types including memos, emails, bank cheques, lease agreements and letters, memos, invoices. Detecting the presence and location of hand written artifacts such as signatures, dates, initials can be critical for scanned (offline) document processing systems. This capability can support multiple downstream tasks such as signature verification, document tagging and categorization.

Please note that this is the updated version of the dataset, with an increased number of original images.

Dataset Source

Images of documents in this dataset are sourced from 4 main locations and then annotated:

Tobacco800 is a publicly accessible document image collection with realistic scope and complexity is important to the document image analysis and search community.

The NIST.gov structured Forms Database consists of 5,590 pages of binary, black-and-white images of synthesized documents. The documents in this database are 12 different tax forms from the IRS 1040 Package X for the year 1988.

The bank cheques dataset is a collection of xx colored images of bank checks. They consist of scanned realistic checks as well as examplar signatures with signatures.

GSA provides electronic copies of GSA lease documents for general public viewing. The lease documents are sorted by region and contain, for the most part, GSA Lease Forms and Lease Amendments (LA) from selected GSA leases across the nation.

Please note that we have removed duplicate photos from the test split

Summary #

SignverOD: A Dataset Signature Object Detection is a dataset for an object detection task. Possible applications of the dataset could be in the optical character recognition (OCR) domain and security industry.

The dataset consists of 2765 images with 8022 labeled objects belonging to 4 different classes including signature, initials, redaction, and other: date.

Images in the SignverOD dataset have bounding box annotations. All images are labeled (i.e. with annotations). There are 2 splits in the dataset: train (2565 images) and test (200 images). The dataset was released in 2021.

Co-occurrence matrix #

Co-occurrence matrix is an extremely valuable tool that shows you the images for every pair of classes: how many images have objects of both classes at the same time. If you click any cell, you will see those images. We added the tooltip with an explanation for every cell for your convenience, just hover the mouse over a cell to preview the description.

Images #

Explore every single image in the dataset with respect to the number of annotations of each class it has. Click a row to preview selected image. Sort by any column to find anomalies and edge cases. Use horizontal scroll if the table has many columns for a large number of classes in the dataset.

Object distribution #

Interactive heatmap chart for every class with object distribution shows how many images are in the dataset with a certain number of objects of a specific class. Users can click cell and see the list of all corresponding images.

Class sizes #

The table below gives various size properties of objects for every class. Click a row to see the image with annotations of the selected class. Sort columns to find classes with the smallest or largest objects or understand the size differences between classes.
