CLARCS: C++ Library for Automated Registration and Comparison of Surfaces
Participants : Ronan Le Tiec, Mathieu Biston, Alexandre Abadie, Benoit Combes, Sylvain Prima.
Within the 3D-MORPHINE ARC project (http://3dmorphine.inria.fr ), we began the conception and implementation of a C++ library (named CLARCS) for the automated analysis and comparison of surfaces. To make these tools widely available to paleoanthropologists, we developed a viewer/application based on this library, VTK and Qt. One of the primary goals of this application (work under progress) is to allow the assessment and quantification of morphological differences of endocranial surfaces within and between species.
