Characterizing the variations of the human body shape is fundamentally important in many applications ranging from animation to product design. 3D scanning technology makes it possible to digitize the complete surfaces of a large number of human bodies, providing much richer information about the body shape than traditional anthropometric measurements. This technology opens up opportunities to extract new measurements for quantifying the body shape. In this paper, we present a new method for… CONTINUE READING
