Open Source iOS Camera Component For Scanning Documents With Perspective Correction

Some time ago I mentioned a custom camera component that uses OpenCV to scan documents.

Here’s another open source camera component submitted by Maximilian Mackh with built-in cropping, document edge detection and perspective correction called IPDFCameraViewController that is the spiritual successor to MAImagePickerController.

IPDFImagePickerController does not use any external libraries, and uses only the iOS SDK – namely AVFoundation, CoreMedia, CoreVideo, CoreImage and GLKit.

Here’s an image from the readme showing IPDFCameraViewController in action.


You can find IPDFCameraViewController on Github here.

A nice camera component for anyone looking to incorporate document scanning into an app.
