Welcome!

CRANIOFACIALidentification.com is a resource hub that offers information, data and code orientated towards craniofacial analysis, including skull morphology, craniofacial superimposition and facial approximation techniques.

This website provides the following...

Data Access Points:

  1. Tallied-Facial-Soft-Tissue-Depth-Data (T-Table).
  2. Facial-Soft-Tissue-Depth-Data-Store (C-Table).

Computer Scripts:

  1. TraumaVision (new)- Record and plot locations of trauma on a skeletal homonculus for large assemblages to visualise trauma distributions and densities.
  2. EasyECD - Automated analysis of IrisPlex SNP data from qPCR results to facilitate iris colour estimation from DNA.
  3. LibraryTracker - For personal library management using a barcode scanner.
  4. SkullProfiler - GUI capability for estimating ancestry and sex from lateral skull photographs.
  5. BodyPlot - BMI and Morphotype plots as used by Stephan et al. (2016) in AJPA.
  6. SkullXtremes - Average skull morphotypes and warp capability for sex and ancestry extremes.
  7. PerspectiveX - R code to calculate subject-to-camera distance and perspective distortion in 2D photographs.
  8. QuickCapture - R code that runs a GUI with three semi-automated and fast landmark aquisition methods from a 2D closed contour using the Conte function described by J. Claude in Morphometrics with R (Springer: New York, 2008). These data are also readily importable to Klingenberg's MorphoJ.
  9. TDStats - v2017.1 released with updated .pdf age scatterplots as described at IACI 2017.

General Features:

  1. Regular updates on new craniofacial identification research.
  2. Downloadable lists of core discipline specific references.
  3. Basic method descriptions and information.
  4. Lists of upcoming professional meetings and conferences.
