Quantitative Visualization Techniques, Skeletonization, Metrics.


In this case study we present a framework for quantifying differences in skeleton algorithms when applied to coral like branching structures. The output of three skeleton al gorithms is applied to a set of well defined morphologi cal metrics, and the results are compared with an a-priori known geometric structure. The results of this study help coral biologists to determine under which circumstances a skeleton algorithm performs adequately.
