Functional 2D Procrustes Shape Analysis

  • Rasmus Larsen
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3540)


Using a landmark based approach to Procrustes alignment neglects the functional nature of outlines and surfaces. In order to re-introduce this functional nature into the analysis we will consider alignment of shapes with functional representations. First functional Procrustes analysis of curve shapes is treated. Following this we will address the analysis of surface shapes.
