Today, there is an increasing availability of human body 3D data and an increasing number of anthropometric owners. This is due to the fact of the progressive conduction of large national surveys using high resolution 3D scanners and due to the increasing number of low-cost technologies for acquiring body shape with electronic consumer devices like webcams, smartphones or Kinect. However, the commercial use and exploitation in industry of digital anthropometric data is still limited to the use of 1D measurements extracted from this vast 3D information. There is a lack of universal resources enabling: to conjointly use and analyse datasets regardless from the source or type of scanning technology used, the flexible measurement extraction beyond pre-defined sets, and the analysis of the information contained in human shapes. This paper presents four software tool solutions aimed at addressing different user profiles and needs regarding the use and exploitation of the increasing number of 3D anthropometric data.
