Hi. I'm new in here and maybe lucky to ask my question in the right place😉
So what' s the matter? I have a highly aggregated pdf-file containing images, tables and metadata as text. Doing it manually, I would do some save as tables with the selectes tables within the pdf-file, save as image with the selected images and save as csv on the rest. Everything with the Adobe ...
After some cleaning i would have three seperated files: xlsx, csv and jpeg. The first two can be read in natively in RM the third, i suppose an extension working fine with it.
How can i do it better? The mentioned elemets appear always at the same position. Horthonworks and Zapier could be integrated to the process.
I'm looking forward to your contributions. Thank you in advance.

you need OCR for this, but even if you are able to convert image to text, it will be big problem with structure of the text and extract specific values. You can use Tesseract for OCR. If you are satified with output, you can order custom development of extension for RapidMiner.

There is a new extension on the Marketplace that RM just developed called PDF Table Extraction. Maybe that can help?
