Shape Model for Contour Domains

What and Where is the Use Case?

This use case demonstrates using ShapeWorks tools to perform the following. - Optimization for N-dimensional contours

The use case is located at: Examples/Python/

Here is an example of the data: Supershapes contour

Running the Use Case

To run the use case, run (in Examples/Python/).

$ cd /path/to/shapeworks/Examples/Python
$ python supershapes_1mode_contour

This calls (in Examples/Python/) to perform the following.

  • Loads the supershapes_1mode_contour dataset using a local version if it exists (i.e., previously downloaded); otherwise, the dataset is automatically downloaded from the ShapeWorks Data Portal.
  • Optimizes particle distribution (i.e., the shape/correspondence model) by calling optimization functions in (in Examples/Python/). See Optimizing Shape Model for details about algorithmic parameters for optimizing the shape model.
  • Launches ShapeWorks Studio to visualize the use case results (i.e., the optimized shape model and the groomed data) by calling functions in (in Examples/Python/).

Grooming Data

In this use case, we download pre-groomed data.

Analyzing Shape Model

ShapeWorks Studio visualizes/analyzes the optimized particle-based shape model by visualizing the mean shape, individual shape samples, and the shape modes of variations. For more information, see: How to Analyze Your Shape Model?.
