SSMTK: Statistical Shape Modelling Toolkit

This toolkit contains a collection of algorithms, implemented in C++ and Python, used for statistical shape modeling and analysis of 3D surface populations:

  • 3D surface parameterization algorithms for disc, sphere, and cylinder topology
  • 3D surface alignment
  • Parameterization-based MDL correspondence optimization for disc and cylinder topology
  • elasticity and model regularized 3D surface registration
  • GUI for surface annotation
  • Statistical hypothesis testing for surface-based shape analysis

Combining 3D morphometry with linear anthropometry to improve the design of specialised headgear

Designers of headgear often still have to rely on outdated anthropometric tables which offer only univariate measurements and very limited information about the variability of the human head. Promising solutions exist to supplement these tables with more complete 3D data, and several 3D model databases are currently on the market.
