|Term||Related API Resources||Definition|
||A job links all of the information needed to digitize a set of completed forms. A job ties together:
- A blank template form (document) with 1 or more blank template pages (sheets)
- One or more completed forms (instance sets), each of which contains a completed form page (instance) for every blank template page (sheet)
- The digitization results (dataset) after a job has been processed
||A document is a blank template form. A document consists of one or more blank template pages (sheets). A user marks up the document using the Captricity web-based document definition tool to specify the information they want digitized.
||Sheet Image, Sheet Thumbnail
||A sheet is a single blank template page belonging to a document that the user marks up to specify the information that they want to digitize. The user defines the data of interest by drawing template fields using the Captricity web-based document definition tool.
||Instance Set, Instance Sets, Incomplete Instance Sets, Iset Instance, Iset Instances
||An instance set is one completed form. Each instance set contains at most one completed form page (instance) for each template page (sheet) in the template form (document). A complete instance set has the same number of completed form pages (instances) as its blank template form (document) has blank template pages (sheets).
||Instance, Instance Aligned Image, Iset Instance, Iset Instances
||An instance is a single completed form page. Each instance belongs to an instance set and corresponds to a particular blank template page (sheet).
||Shred, Shreds, Shred Image
||A shred is a subregion of a completed form page (instance). A shred represents one semantic piece of data. For example, assume you are digitizing a survey and one question is the respondent's age. For each respondent you will digitize a completed form (instance set). For each completed form there will be one shred corresponding to the subregion where the respondent wrote down their age. The user defines the characteristics of a shred by drawing template fields using the Captricity web-based document definition tool.
||A dataset is the result of digitization. Once a job is complete, a dataset will be created containing a transcribed value for each shred in each instance set in the job. The dataset is available in CSV format.
