With the adoption of tablet-based data entry devices, there is considerable interest in methods for converting hand-drawn sketches of flow charts, graphs and block diagram into accurate machine interpretations, a conversion process with many applications in engineering, presentations, and simulations. However, the recognition of hand-drawn graphics is a great challenge due to the visual similarity of many system components. This is complicated due to the significant differences in drawing styles between users.
