SDMVIS is a visual analysis software to explore statistical deformation models(SDM) of volumetric organisms. Interactive exploration is facilitated by integrating two kinds of expert knowledge: taxonomical or other classications of the datasets as well as knowledge about relevant structures and parts of the shape. Given a classication into two groups the corresponding dominant shape differences between the groups (a so-called trait) can be computed and visualized in a dynamic fashion. Based on a selected region of interest (ROI) a new weighted SDM can be derived whose principal modes of shape variability are again accessible in a dynamic visualization.

This work is part of the project "Shape Analysis and Interactive Shape Space Exploration".

Responsible for development is Max Hermann.
