The surface textures of corroded materials gave us important information to understand corrosion mechanisms. Various methods to measure these corrosion shapes were already reported. These methods were briefly explained in this article and the characteristics of these were summarized. Especially, a stereo image processing technique which can derive three dimensional feature of a corroded specimen is explained in detail. And the future trends of the analysis of corroded shapes are introduced briefly.
