Dear Martin,

many thanks for your input!

Our question at the moment is simply, does a page in the PDF represent one or two pages of the book?

Later on, we might have more specific questions that will require us to define the relationships between these two page identifiers (in the physical book and in the PDF) more explicitly. We would then also need to manually assess each PDF as, for instance, we can not assume that page n in a book corresponds to page n/2 in a double-spread PDF. A PDF might contain some additional pages with information about the digitisation process.

For now we however only need a binary answer: double-spread yes or no.

All the best,

Florian
