Launched in May 1999, DocMorph is a publicly available Web site that allows
users to convert more than 50 types of electronic files into
5 possible outputs:
- Portable Document Format (PDF)
- Multi-page Tagged Image File Format (TIFF)
- Single-page TIFF
- Machine-translated text
The DocMorph Web site is not only a useful consumer tool, but it also
provides the National Library of Medicine (NLM) a research mechanism to evaluate
the effectiveness and utility of various document image processing techniques
and algorithms. Click here for publications
relating to DocMorph research and development.
The file conversion process takes approximately fifteen seconds after files are
uploaded to DocMorph. These file conversion functions may be used with a PC,
Macintosh, or UNIX computer and a modern Web browser.
