Imprecise diagrams occur in many situations. We propose a five-stage architecture for interpreting such diagrams, and have implemented this approach in an automatic grading tool for answers to examination questions. The approach is based on identifying (possibly malformed) minimal meaningful units and interpreting them to yield a meaningful result. Early indications are that the tool's performance is similar to human markers.
||Traditionally, the diagram-interpretation community has looked at either human interpretation of imprecise diagrams, or the machine interpretation of formal, mathematically-based diagrams. This paper was the first description of attempts to interpret diagrams that are known to be imprecise in some manner. Diagrams is a multi-disciplinary international conference. It is the world-leading conference in the area of diagrammatic reasoning research. All submissions were anonymously peer-reviewed. 15% of papers were accepted.
