Abstract : In this paper we present an adaptative method for graphic symbol representation based on shape contexts. The proposed descriptor is invariant under classical geometric transforms (rotation, scale) and based on interest points. To reduce the complexity of matching a symbol to a large set of candidates we use the popular vector model for information retrieval. In this way, on the set of shape descriptors we build a visual vocabulary where each symbol is retrieved on visual words. Experimental results on complex and occluded symbols show that the approach is very promising.
