Abstract

A program for the interactive transformation of 2D vector data is presented. The program allows the definition of local and global transformations to establish a matching between two data sets. Zoologists deduce relationships between life forms by investigating their geometric shape. The presented program enables the investigation of 2D cross-sections of, e.g., insect bodies. The amount of the distortion required to map one cross-section onto another illustrates evolutionary links among different species. The program is intended to facilitate the above mentioned research activities.
