Gives access to a database of periodic structures of curves on scallop shells. PyBase utilizes image processing analytical methods to classify the data. Bifurcation points, crossover points of the growth rings and ribs and connected lines constitutes the patterns of periodic structures. Species identification is enabled by the individual recognition method. The database permits multiscale segmentation, identification cyclic structures and pattern matching.
