   wb_command -surface-geodesic-distance
      <surface> - the surface to compute on
      <vertex> - the vertex to compute geodesic distance from
      <metric-out> - output - the output metric

      [-naive] - use only neighbors, don't crawl triangles (not recommended)

      [-limit] - stop at a certain distance
         <limit-mm> - distance in mm to stop at

      [-corrected-areas] - vertex areas to use instead of computing them from
         the surface
         <area-metric> - the corrected vertex areas, as a metric

      Unless -limit is specified, computes the geodesic distance from the
      specified vertex to all others.  The result is output as a single column
      metric file, with a value of -1 for vertices that the distance was not
      computed for.

      The -corrected-areas option should be used when the input is a group
      average surface - group average surfaces have significantly less surface
      area than individual surfaces do, and therefore distances measured on
      them would be smaller than measuring them on individual surfaces.  In
      this case, the input to this option should be a group average of the
      output of -surface-vertex-areas for each subject.

      If -naive is not specified, the algorithm uses not just immediate
      neighbors, but also neighbors derived from crawling across pairs of
      triangles that share an edge.
