Compute surface variation in matlab

The following Matlab project contains the source code and Matlab examples used for compute surface variation. From 3D point clouds , we can computed for each point how they deviate from tangent plane. This algorithm very useful for point simplification .

The source code and files included in this project are listed in the project files section, please make sure whether the listed source code meet your needs there.
