Landmarks of the sampled women of the Spanish Survey


The body shape of the women who belong to sampleSpanishSurvey is represented by a set of anatomical correspondence points, called landmarks.

This database collects the set of landmarks of each woman.

The landmarks considered were placed in three different ways:

  • Automatic landmarks: automatically calculated with scanner program algorithms, based on geometrical features of the body.

  • Manual landmarks: points which are not reflected on the external body geometry; they were located through palpation by expert personnel and identified by a physical marker.

  • Digital landmarks: detected on the computer screen in the 3D scanned image. They are not robust on the automatic calculation but are easy to detect on the screen.




A data frame with 600 observations and 198 variables (66 landmarks times 3 dimensions).
