Point Distribution Models (PDM’s) of the human body, created from a set of body surface scans (point clouds) can be used to represent variations in 3D body shape through a small number of shape parameters called “Modes of Variation”. However, in order to create accurated PDM’s, the scans must be represented by an equal number of anatomically corresponding points, which are difficult to determine.
