Anatomical landmarks are standard reference points in the face and head used by scientists and physicians. Landmarks tend to be somewhat more abstract than other features of the skull such as protuberances or lines. Skull landmarks are defined by the intersection of sutures, as the extreme points on the skull, etc. These references are relevant to physical measurements and for understanding how appearances change, either slowly, as with aging, or rapidly, as with muscular action.
