Place-march of corresponding landmarks is one of the major factors influencing 3D Points Distribution Model (PDM) quality. In this study, we propose a semi-automatic correspondence method based on surface parameterization theory. All the training sets are mapped into a spherical domain previously. The rotation transformation of training samples is regarded as spherical rotation of their maps. We solve it by comparing the density distribution of surface map of training sample with respect to the reference model. Simultaneously, the corresponding landmarks across the whole training set are marketed depending on the spherical coordinates on parameter domain. In this paper, we also compared the corresponding results with two constraint conditions of spherical conformal mapping: 3 datum points constrain and zero-mass constrain. Experimental results are given for left lung training sets of 3D shapes. The mean result with the 3 datum points constraint and the zero mass-center constraint was 21.65 mm and 20.19 mm respectively.
