Automatic landmarking for building biological shape models
In this article we present a new method for automatic landmark extraction from the contours of biological specimens. Our ultimate goal is to enable automatic identification of biological specimens in photographs and drawings held in a database. We propose to use Active Appearance Models for visual indexing of both photographs and drawings. Automatic landmark extraction will assist us in building the models. Below we describe the results of using our method on drawings and photographs of examples of diatoms, and present an Active Shape Model built using automatically extracted data.
