TpsSuper

tpsSuper. Superimposition, image unwarping and averaging. Prforms a least-squares orthogonal generalized Procrustes analysis, unwarps the images for each specimen to the consensus configuration, and then averages the unwarped images. The program can unwarp and average to an specified configuration of landmarks (for example estimated configurations provided by the tpsRelw, tpsRegr, or tpsTree programs) This program was written to provide a better visualization of an estimated shape than simply a plot of points corresponding to landmarks. It can also be used to help one decide whether one has sufficient landmarks - or perhaps more than are really necessary. The tpssuperw32.exe file expands into a Windows setup program and associated files. tpsSuper64 requires 64bit versions of Windows. By F. James Rohlf. Version 2.03 .
