Description Spatial interpolation and smoothing is usually done for one surface. In our case, we have random samples of such surfaces represented by human faces captured by stereo-photogrammetry and characterised by about 150,000 points. These points are triangulated by about 300,000 triangles. The number of points is extremely high for the purpose of statistical analyses, therefore the 3D coordinates of (semi)landmarks on curves or surface patches sufficiently characterising the shape have to be automatically identified and this simplified model comprising about 1000 points is then used in further statistical modelling in functional data analysis setting. The identification of (semi)landmarks is a complex process during which B-splines, P-splines and thin-plate splines are used together with the measures of local surface topology, including principal curvatures and shape index.
