AMI-Diagram is a tool for mining facts from diagrams, and converting the graphics primitives into XML. Targets include X-Y plots, barcharts, chemical structure diagrams and phylogenetic trees. Part of the ContentMine framework for automatically extracting science from the published literature, AMI can ingest born-digital diagrams either as latent vectors, pixel diagrams or scanned documents. For high-quality/resolution diagrams the process is automatic; command line parameters can be used for noisy or complex diagrams. This article provides on overview of the tool which is currently being deployed to alpha-testers, especially in chemistry and phylogenetics.
