I would like to apply the SPHARM-PDM to triangular meshes for palaeontological morphometrics. I first saw this method applied in SPHARM-MAT of Styner (2006)
I’m not sure if this is a related project, but seems to do very similar things.
I think that my mesh format is an issue for the first step (Post Process Segmentation) as it isn’t voxel data.
Is the surface mesh in step 2 triangular? If so I could maybe use command line control to skip the first step and the rest might work?
SPHARM-PDM can take vtp files as an input, and I think I found a way to convert my stl data to this format. Would this produce the right type of data for this process?
Thank you for your help
