The further development of advanced collation and difference detection software that allows for the robust comparison of scanned images of texts, even if those scans include errors like warping of the page.

PARAGON builds on a successful prototype funded by an NEH startup grant in 2009. This prototype demonstrated that combining SIFT (scale-invariant feature transform) and TPS (Thin-Plate Spline) algorithms makes it possible to automate the detailed comparison of scanned images captured under varying circumstances, whether scanned, camera-taken from different heights or angles, rotated, differently lighted, or even slightly warped. PARAGON will develop this prototype into a robust, open-source software capable of analyzing and collating large sets of digital images.
