This extension is a collection of different modules that will enable the user to quantify shape differences between two models and/or compute shape statistics in a model .
LongitudinalQuantification includes preprocessing tools, allowing the user to edit the models by cropping them (EasyClip) and/or making registration between models(SurfaceRegistration).
The user will have the choice to compute distances between points (Q3DC) or angles between lines (Q3DC) or planes (AnglePlanes).
He will be able to create distance maps (ModelToModelDistance) to either display them as color maps (ShapePopulationViewer) or compute statistics ( MeshStatistics) on the entire model or just a region of interest (PickAndPaint).
All those modules will be available to use by themselves or all at once by using LongitudinalQuantification that will guide the user through the different steps.
