Creating reusable well-structured pdf as a sequence of component object graphic (cog) elements
Bagley, Steven R. and Brailsford, David F. and Hardy, Matthew R. B. (2003) Creating reusable well-structured pdf as a sequence of component object graphic (cog) elements. In: ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng '03), 20-22 November 2003, Grenoble, France.
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a page-oriented, graphically rich format based on PostScript semantics and it is also the format interpreted by the Adobe Acrobat viewers. Although each of the pages in a PDF document is an independent graphic object this property does not necessarily extend to the components (headings, diagrams, paragraphs etc.) within a page. This, in turn, makes the manipulation and extraction of graphic objects on a PDF page into a very difficult and uncertain process.
