Table Extraction PDF Image Dataset

The dataset comes from Devashish Prasad, Ayan Gadpal, Kshitij Kapadni, Manish Visave, and Kavita Sultanpure - creators of CascadeTabNet.

Depending on the dataset version downloaded, the images will include annotations for 'borderless' tables, 'bordered' tables', and 'cells'. Borderless tables are those in which every cell in the table does not have a border. Bordered tables are those in which every cell in the table has a border, and the table is bordered. Cells are the individual data points within the table.

A subset of the full dataset, the ICDAR Table Cells Dataset, was extracted and imported to Roboflow to create this hosted version of the Cascade TabNet project. All the additional dataset components used in the full project are available here: All Files.

Versions:

  1. Version 1, raw-images : 342 raw images of tables. No augmentations, preprocessing step of auto-orient was all that was added.
  2. Version 2, tableBordersOnly-rawImages : 342 raw images of tables. This dataset version contains the same images as version 1, but with the caveat of Modify Classes being applied to omit the 'cell' class from all images (rendering these images to be apt for creating a model to detect 'borderless' tables and 'bordered' tables.

For the versions below: Preprocessing step of Resize (416by416 Fit within-white edges) was added along with more augmentations to increase the size of the training set and to make our images more uniform. Preprocessing applies to all images whereas augmentations only apply to training set images.
3. Version 3, augmented-FAST-model : 818 raw images of tables. Trained from Scratch (no transfer learning) with the "Fast" model from Roboflow Train. 3X augmentation (generated images).
4. Version 4, augmented-ACCURATE-model : 818 raw images of tables. Trained from Scratch with the "Accurate" model from Roboflow Train. 3X augmentation.
5. Version 5, tableBordersOnly-augmented-FAST-model : 818 raw images of tables. 'Cell' class ommitted with Modify Classes. Trained from Scratch with the "Fast" model from Roboflow Train. 3X augmentation.
6. Version 6, tableBordersOnly-augmented-ACCURATE-model : 818 raw images of tables. 'Cell' class ommitted with Modify Classes. Trained from Scratch with the "Accurate" model from Roboflow Train. 3X augmentation.

Cascade TabNet in ActionCascade TabNet in Action
CascadeTabNet is an automatic table recognition method for interpretation of tabular data in document images. We present an improved deep learning-based end to end approach for solving both problems of table detection and structure recognition using a single Convolution Neural Network (CNN) model. CascadeTabNet is a Cascade mask Region-based CNN High-Resolution Network (Cascade mask R-CNN HRNet) based model that detects the regions of tables and recognizes the structural body cells from the detected tables at the same time. We evaluate our results on ICDAR 2013, ICDAR 2019 and TableBank public datasets. We achieved 3rd rank in ICDAR 2019 post-competition results for table detection while attaining the best accuracy results for the ICDAR 2013 and TableBank dataset. We also attain the highest accuracy results on the ICDAR 2019 table structure recognition dataset.
