This is the extended version on PC (MS Windows) of the previous Machine Drawing
Understanding System (MDUS) developed by Dr.

Liu Wenyin
(

) as part of his PhD thesis
using the methods published in

the following
papers. You may select appropriate papers to cite if you wish to use our

The performance evaluation protoco
l of
graphics recognition algorithms

[6]

(published in
MVA, 1997) has been frequently used
as performance evaluation protocol
in quite a few
related contests
(GREC2001, 2003, 2005, 2009
, and 2011
)
.


The

system
also
participated
in
the series of GREC conte
sts

many times

(1995, 1997,
1999, 2007, 2009

and 2011) and especially won the first place in the
Dashed Line
Detection Contest

during GREC1995.
It

was also evaluated as the best system for
mechanical engineering drawings recognition among the three partici
pants in the
Graphics Recognition Contest

during GREC1997.
The system

is committed as an open
source project at
http://code.google.com/p/vrliu/
.
