We present our work on computing an average curve given a set of planar input curves, with select applications. This work, to be soon presented at the Symposium on Geometric and Physical Modeling, provides a mathematical formulation and a fast algorithm for the problem of finding an average curve, given a set of input curves. Applications in the field of animation and statistical analysis are highlighted.
