Procrustes distance provides a measure of coincidence of two point sets xi and yi, i=1..N. For this purpose the variance of point deviations is calculated at the optimal superposition of the sets. It allows to characterize the shape proximity of a given simplex to shape of a reference one.
A matrix containing procrustes distance between shapes. Procrustes distance is the square root of the sum of squared differences in the posititions of the landmarks in two shapes (Dryden and Mardia 1998). This can be used to describe the difference between many landmark configurations (Rohlf and Slive 1990).
