Lecture #2

Shape analysis. Shape is any connected set of points:

  1. localist representation is based on descriptive shape parameters
  2. distributed representation is pixel-based

There are different methods for describing shape: circularity, quadrature, irregularity, elongation, size measurements. Like morphometric measurements in anthropology, we can also use curvature changes' points.

Surfaces are characterized by texture.

It is important to find a balance between globalisation and localisation when describing shape.
