About MorphoDig

MorphoDig' Focus and Scope

MorphoDig provides a set of tools for editing, positioning, deforming, labelling, measuring and rendering sets of 3D surfaces. Since version 1.5, MorphoDig also provides tool for opening, editing and visualizing 3D volumes, and to extract 3D surfaces out of 3D volumes.

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)
  • Surface scalar computation and coloring (based upon curvature/thickness etc...)
  • Volume rendering of CT data (3D Volumes).
  • Isosurface extraction from CT data.
  • 3D Mask edition.

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.
