Create your own template
Aspose.OMR for .NET API provides methods to generate OMR templates from text description. Using this feature developers can create highly customizable nice looking omr sheets ready for print. API supports several types of elements, including text, choice box (question), answer sheet (several columns of questions), grid (complex values that consist of similar sections). Generated images can be saved as ready-to-print PDF files or PNG images.
No need to start from empty list! Take a look at demonstration markups and generated images for a good understanding of generation capabilities and things you can start on. For more details on features and settings you can check our documentation.
// path to the txt markup file string markupPath = "Survey01Markup.txt"; // initialize omr engine OmrEngine engine = new OmrEngine(); // call generation method and get result: image and template (.omr file) GenerationResult result = engine.GenerateTemplate(markupPath); // path to the folder where the results will be saved string outputFolder = "OmrTemplates"; // the name of the generated template and image string templateName = "Survey01"; // save results result.Save(outputFolder, templateName);
Recognize OMR sheets
Aspose.OMR for .NET main feature is a recognition. API can recognize photos and scans in multiple image formats, including JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP. In order to recognize images OMR engine requires .omr file, which is a template that describes position and content of the form. Generation provides template with each created form and we offer GUI application for creating template from any user image.
Recognition process is fast and accurate and takes just a couple of seconds per image, depending on the image quality and size. This allows processing large numbers of forms in short amount of time.
The recognition results can be saved as JSON or CSV files.
// path to the .omr file string templatePath = "MyTest1.omr"; // initialize engine and get template processor providing path to the .omr file OmrEngine engine = new OmrEngine(); TemplateProcessor templateProcessor = engine.GetTemplateProcessor(templatePath); // path to the filled omr form image string imagePath = "MyTest1Photo1.jpg"; // call recognition method and get the result RecognitionResult result = templateProcessor.RecognizeImage(imagePath); // path to the results file string exportPath = "Photo1Results.csv"; // export results as csv string File.WriteAllText(exportPath, result.GetCsv());
