The MORFO3D Foot Database

  • Conference paper
Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (IbPRIA 2005)


A foot database comprising 3D foot shapes and footwear fitting reports of more than 300 participants is presented. It was primarily acquired to study footwear fitting, though it can also be used to analyse anatomical features of the foot. In fact, we present a technique for automatic detection of several foot anatomical landmarks, together with some empirical results.

Work supported by the “Agència Valenciana de Ciència i Tecnologia” under grant GRUPOS03/031 and the Spanish projects DPI2001-0880-CO2-01 and DPI2001-0880-CO2-02.
