While Geometric Morphometrics approaches based on landmarks is an invaluable tool in analysing shape variation, there exist a variety use-cases where the sparsity of the traditional landmarks falls short in capturing the entire shape of a structure and even the more complex semi-landmarks (on curves and surfaces) lack the information needed to represent a 3D surface adequately (missing orientation and connectivity).
We are addressing these issues by introducing shape models created from 3D- surface meshes that include these information.
