CLiDE is a chemistry intelligent equivalent of Optical Character
Recognition (OCR) software. Just as an OCR can recognize characters from
a scanned images of printed text, CLiDE can recognize structures, reactions
and text from scanned images of printed chemistry literature.
The software saves users hours of redrawing structures from printed
material, as it transforms the 'images' into a 'real structures' that can
then be input into databases.
The latest edition CLiDEv5 comes in three flavors:
The easy to use, common office application, to convert one picture into one structure at a time.
The full desktop version of the software, still easy to use, but with the
capability to process multiple structures and multiple pages within one
document at a time.
Full processing power of the software without the graphical user interface instead with command line options to drive the
software on myriad of images via scripting.
