This article compares two different local surface shape description methods. The general goal of surface shape description methods is to classify different surface shapes from range data. One well-known method to classify patches of various shapes is the HK classification space[1,2,4]. Another way to classify patches was the SC method introduced by Koenderink. We conclude that Koenderink's approach has some advantages at low thresholds, complex scenes and at dealing with noise.
