Osteometric points (bone measuring points) are an agreed upon set of locations on the skeleton, or more commonly the skull, that aid in the study of osteology. These points were developed to help researchers make comparative measurements between specimens, and report finding in a unified and unambiguous manner. These points are often placed at key landmarks or bone sutures (e.g. Bregma- where the coronal and sagittal sutures intersect) to simplify the process of properly identifying them.
