Image Search Function Question

Postby teknojo » 06 Oct 2012, 03:25

Hello,

It was suggested I post this question here.

I poked around and searched a couple of terms and did not find a discussion along these lines. I was wondering if anyone has worked on a program or app that would take web cam images or scans from a digital phone of existing cards and compare it to a database of images like those collected here.

Ideally you would be able to have it on a phone, activate the app and have it capture an image of a card similar to how you can capture an image of a 2D bar code, then use something like Google Image search to compare it to the already scanned data base.

Alternately you could do the same thing using a business card scanner.

The point to this would be to rapidly input your personal collection of cards into a database without having to sit there and manually type in each card. Simply take your cards scan them in and allow the program to build your database for you.
