Algorithms for shape analysis are reviewed and classified under various criteria, whether they examine the boundary only or the whole area and whether they describe the original picture in terms of scalar measurements or through structural descriptions. The emphasis is on methodologies which have been popular during the last five years and among them, those which are information preserving.
