In this paper, we present an original method that aims at parcellating the cortical surface in regions functionally meaningful, from individual anatomy. The parcellation is obtained using an anatomically constrained surface-based coordinate system from which we define a complete partition of the surface. The aim of our method is to exhibit a new way to describe the cortical surface organization, in both anatomical and functional terms. The method is described together with results applied to a functional somatotopy experiments.
