Abstract : One hundred and twenty uncurved random shapes frequently used in studies of form perception are described in terms of 12 nearly orthogonal physical measures of shape. Calculation of the measures is described and their unique characteristics are pointed out. Although random shapes were examined in this investigation, techniques developed and conclusions arrived at are equally relevant to the specification of some of the chracteristics of targets in the real world.
