scikit-image vs Tesseract OCR: What are the differences?
scikit-image: Image processing in Python. scikit-image is a collection of algorithms for image processing; Tesseract OCR: Tesseract Open Source OCR Engine. Tesseract was originally developed at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories Bristol and at Hewlett-Packard Co, Greeley Colorado between 1985 and 1994, with some more changes made in 1996 to port to Windows, and some C++izing in 1998. In 2005 Tesseract was open sourced by HP. Since 2006 it is developed by Google.
scikit-image and Tesseract OCR are primarily classified as "Image Processing and Management" and "Image Analysis API" tools respectively.
scikit-image and Tesseract OCR are both open source tools. It seems that Tesseract OCR with 28.1K GitHub stars and 5.38K forks on GitHub has more adoption than scikit-image with 3.1K GitHub stars and 1.31K GitHub forks.
