Wolfpack Cross-platform file conversion system  


Creating a digital library requires converting the original scanned images into various formats. WolfpackSys is a software system which performs these large data conversion tasks in a distributed manner. The WolfpackSys framework allows the best off-the-shelf conversion programs to be used in an automated system, and it runs the conversions in parallel on a large number of machines. WolfpackSys is currently used to perform image cropping, deskewing, despeckling and OCR, as well as to create JPEG and Acrobat files from scanned images.
