A new website provides an interactive introduction to morphometry and user-friendly analysis tools.

The website presents an introduction to Minkowski tensors as robust and versatile shape characteristics. It covers both the integral-geometric background as well as example applications to different types of spatial structures, including image data, polygonal data and particle configurations.

The main feature is the new morphometer in which small datasets can be analyzed interactively in the browser window, or even on your mobile phone. Morphometer can also generate different types of point patterns and random polygons, and generate shapes with predefined Minkowski structure metrics (Minkowski synthesis). For more advanced problems, we provide C++ code for both 2D and 3D.

We hope you enjoy our website and the interactive software as a valuable tool for your research and teaching. Comments and suggestions are welcome. Just send us an e-mail (
