Analysis of effectiveness of current methods for determining human height by his footprints

Keywords: footprints, footwear impressions, ways of defining human height, ratios of foot length, shortcomings of calculations

The article conducts a comparative analysis of existing ways to define human height by his single footprint. Each of the previously reviewed methods is significantly different from the others both by form of dependence between feet lengths and ratios of their relationship with height and by values of these ratios. Thus, currently available methods for calculation human height by his footprints have at least one, if not several shortcomings, to which the article draws attention.
