Global shape measures are a convenient way to describe regions. They are generally simple and efficient to extract, and provide an easy means for high level tasks such as classification as well as helping direct low-level computer vision processes such as segmentation. In this chapter a large selection of global shape measures (some from the standard literature as well as other newer methods) are described and demonstrated.
