This paper proposes a new method for the identification of the symmetry plane of the human face, working from 3D high-density scanned data. The method being proposed is an original variant of a typical mirroring and registration method. This method is validated by analysing some specifically designed test cases. The obtained results show that the method is quite insensitive to local asymmetries, whether they be near or far from the symmetry plane, and is also repeatable and slightly conditioned by the acquisition process.

Abstract

This paper proposes a new method for the identification of the symmetry plane of the human face, working from 3D high-density scanned data. The method being proposed is an original variant of a typical mirroring and registration method. This method is validated by analysing some specifically designed test cases. The obtained results show that the method is quite insensitive to local asymmetries, whether they be near or far from the symmetry plane, and is also repeatable and slightly conditioned by the acquisition process.
