Publication in Computers & Geosciences

Solid modeling of fossil small mammal teeth
A work flow has been established for extracting, from μCT data, the most important morphological features in Small Mammal Teeth. Making it open to the scientific community, this innovative approach has been published in the renowned Geoinformatics journal “Computers & Geosciences”. The digital version of this SCI indexed publication can be downloaded via:
Main components of the published work flow are microtomography, 3D OBIA, and voxel modeling.
