Abstract: Shape deformation refers to the continuous change of one geometric object to another. We develop a software tool for planning, analyzing and visualizing deformations between two shapes in R-2. The deformation is generated automatically without any user intervention or specification of feature correspondences. A unique property of the tool is the explicit availability of a two-dimensional shape space, which can be used for designing the deformation either automatically by following constraints and objectives or manually by drawing deformation paths.
