Numerical technique for measurement the form of local atomic formation with well-defined exterior boundary was presented. Algorithms were analyzed, necessary software was developed and tested for the model clusters. For the series of equilibrium clusters with Lennard-Jones interparticle interactions the form of clusters was measured. It was shown that for such clusters within the framework of proposed method both the oscillations of size-dependent properties and sequence of magic numbers are correctly reproduced.
