PRImA Layout Analysis Dataset :: Use


To download the dataset please create a user account on our main website. This dataset can then be accessed here.


Browsing and searching are supported to select documents satisfying a number of different criteria, ranging from layout features to image characteristics.

Images and ground truth can be examined efficiently at different levels of detail without downloading full-sized files.

Ad-hoc collections of documents can be constructed e.g. for the evaluation of methods focussing on specific layout analysis challenges.


Scanned pages (all images) are available in the dataset exclusively for personal research and, in general, must not be reproduced in any form (even in scientific publications) without the permission of the copyright holder(s). Information on the copyright holder(s) is displayed for every page image in the dataset in order to make it possible to identify who to seek permission from.

We are working towards securing permission from publishers so that researchers can freely use images and reproduce them in scientific publications. Wherever such permission is available, it is indicated in the metadata and displayed for each page image.
