The 2012 Canadian Forces 3D Anthropometric Survey is the first major 3D anthropometric survey of Canadian Forces personnel. 2200 full-body scans were conducted, together with traditional anthropometric measurements. This survey aims at providing accurate, detailed, and up-to-date body shape information for equipment design and procurement. In this paper, we describe the data processing and analysis of this dataset. This includes de-noising, template fitting, landmark identification, and statistical shape analysis. We also compare the military personnel with the general North American population using the CAESAR dataset.
