About MorphoDig

MorphoDig' Focus and Scope

MorphoDig provides a set of tools for editing, positioning, deforming, labelling, measuring and rendering sets of 3D meshes.

Features include:

  • Retro-deformation for un-deforming fossils/deformed specimens
  • Point and curve primitives for placing the exact type of landmark points you're interested in
  • Easy to use 3D interface for positioning and manipulating sets of surfaces and landmark primitives
  • Mesh tagging, labelling and coloring (to allow for the creation of anatomy atlases)
  • Mesh scalar computation and coloring (based upon curvature/thickness etc...)

About the software

MorphoDig is based on the design concepts of the software FoRM-IT (Fossil Reconstruction and Morphometry Interactive Toolkit; see Zollikofer CPE & Ponce de León MS (1995) Tools for rapid prototyping in the biosciences. IEEE Comp. Graph. Appl., 15(6), 48-55; Zollikofer CPE & Ponce de León MS. (2005) Virtual reconstruction: A primer in computer-assisted paleontology and biomedicine. New York: Wiley).

MorphoDig is mainly developed and maintained by Renaud LEBRUN

MorphoDig is open-source, you can pull the source code at

MorphoDig is developed in C++ with the help of the following libraries: VTK , Qt.
