Similar to the Dictionary Rule, the Mapping Rule can be applied to any type of extracted data, and is used to automatically map extracted to data to a predefined value. This is especially useful when correcting the extracted data to what is expected.
For example, a Numeric value may expected for a field, but the OCR Service could return Alphabetic characters, such as a ‘S’ instead of an ‘5’ or a ‘O’ instead of an ‘0’ (zero). The Mapping Rule is also useful to remove any Whitespaces from an extracted OCR value.
The Replacement Mapping Dictionary is used to provide a list of values to be mapped. The user is required to provide the Key (value to be replaced), and the corresponding mapped value. To add a new entry, click on “Click here to add a new row”.
