Summary Offline handwritten recognition is more challenging as indicated by the recognition technologies. This study demonstrates significantly higher rates recognition when compared with other comparable studies. In this paper, we present a circular grid zoning method applied on Polar transformation recognition system. It compares the circular grid zoning (CGZ) and standard zoning (SZ) feature extraction method on Polar and Cartesian coordinate system. We report recognition rates of 92.3%, which are considerably higher than previous studies of zoning based Polar transformation system (86.6%) and zoning based Cartesian recognition system (80.6%). Based on the finding, we propose that our circular grid zoning based Polar transformation system may provide improved classification rates for complex offline handwritten recognition.
