Title: SHREC 2014 track on automatic location of landmarks used in manual anthropometry
Published: June 12, 2014
Abstract: In this paper we report the results of the SHREC 2014 track on automatic location of landmarks used in manual anthropometry. The track has been organized to test the ability of modern computational geometry/pattern recognition techniques to locate accurately reference points used for tape-based measurement. Participants had to locate six specific landmarks on human models acquired with a structured light body scanner. A training set of 50 models with manual annotations of the corresponding landmarks location was provided to train the algorithms. A test set of 50 different models was also provided, without annotations. Accuracy of the automatic location methods was tested computing geodesic distances of the detected points from manually placed ones and evaluating different quality scores and functions.
