Study on Circumference Calculation Method of Characteristic Body Parts Based on Two-Dimensional Image
In this research, 425 female college students aged from 18 to 26 were selected as samples, using 3D body scanner to get the body Point-cloud image, and measure the thickness, width and girth size of characteristic body parts(waist, abdomen, hip) ; By studying the circumferences sections of characteristic body parts, body type is classified according to thickness / width ratio; The correlation of circumference with thickness and width is analyzed, the circumference calculating equations for different body size is obtained, then the reasonableness of the method is tested, which providing a reference for the human body circumference automatically generated from 2D images.
