This dataset consists of manually segmented grantha characters from palmleaflets.Grantha characters was the script used in southern India to write sanskrit language.This dataset will serve as ground truth for testing segmentation algorithms for extraction of characters from palm leaf images.The palm leaflets are taken from the manuscript "Isadi Upanishad" obtained from Oriental Research Institute under University of Kerala,India.It consists of two input palm leaflets and the corresponding cropped characters of each line arranged in different folders.
