ABSTRACT

The article presents the use of modern close range photogrammetry for possessing
highly accurate 3D models of the human face (including the ears). Modern methods
used to obtain precise data describing the construction of a human face, and even the
whole human body, should allow to get finished measurement material in a very short
time. Those features belong to the optical scanning technology. Comparative analysis of models of the human face has been made (created from the cloud of points obtained
from optical scanner) for the same person as well as for two different persons. Among
other things, the parameters describing the similarity of a human face (in particular, the
similarity of the human ear) based primarily on the analysis of the differences between
the points of the model (comparison of several hundred thousand points on the model)
were determined. Ultimately, these parameters can be used to identify persons.
Considering the great opportunities presented methods, other potential applications have been presented.
