Classical and recent uniqueness results for convex bodies by sections or projections are described and the corresponding estimation problems from incomplete information are discussed. The results are applied to planar random sets, spatial fibre processes, and Boolean models. It is shown that convex mean bodies can give information about the shape distribution even for random structures of a non-convex nature.

Keywords : Boolean model, convex bodies, projections, random set, sections, fibre process
