Abstract: This paper describes a waist to hip section surface profile automatic analysing system: WHS. It adopts novel surface morphological information processing methodology, which is able to retrieve and store both the 2D and 3D information of the waist to hip section. We collected 65 Chinese females to test the performance of WHS. The results provided comprehensive 3D measurement information including girth, length measurements, and shape clustering result.

Keywords: waist; hip; 3D measurement; automation; section surface profiles; surface morphology; information processing; China; girth measurement; length measurement; shape clustering.
