Hello everyone, We have almost 20 different types of documents(like driving license, social security card, company I-card). Now I want to create a application which can detect the type of document from its image.

Earlier, I tried Template Matching but its results were not promising. In the current sample image, there are 3 kind of documents(each have 3 samples).

Will the 'Haar-cascade' useful in this case ? Any help or suggestions are appreciated. image description

I think simple Segmentation & Template matching is enough for this task! May I know why the Template Matching failed? Have to Tried to Segment the Background/ constant part of these documents & match it? Can you show us what you have tried?
