We present in this paper a methodology dealing with raster to vector conversion for technical documents interpretation. The adopted approach considers the problem of information layer separation. The retained strategy consists in applying a sequence of different specialists the aim of which is to process a particular problem. Even if many commercial systems exist, this kind of problem constitutes a real difficulty which is not completely solved. The obtained results are evaluated and discussed in the context of French Telephonic Network Documents Interpretation.
