See Also: We recently blogged about the launch of ChemxSeer from. C. Lee Giles at Penn State.
It includes a very cool feature named TableSeer.

This tool automatically identifies tables in digital documents and extracts the contents in the cells of the tables. The contents are stored in a queryable table in a database. TableSeer extracts table metadata, and uses a novel ranking function to search for tables relevant to user queries.
