Yes they should be and are different.
But see how a handshape relate to the signtyp hand posture. Why?
Because they are both describing the same reality from two different
points of view.
My hand search work just the oposite of Signwriting to Signtype.
You can choose which fingers are extended, root shape, etc to find just
the handshape you need for a sign. I was thinking of extending the
search criteria to me be inclusive of hand feature as is the signtyp

everyone: the SignTyp seems to be a research tool for sign
linguists, while the SignStudio is for the general user, am I right?
Then they should be different ...

working right now on a part of my SignWriter project that ties in a
little with the SignWriting to SignTyp. Except that I am going from
hand characteristics to symbol, in SignWriter Studio it is called "Hand
Search". I have it setup for all the hand basegroups but it isn't as
detailed as SignTyp. I personally feel that it would benefit being a
bit more complete as far handshape characteristics. But having full
SignTyp would probably be too complicated for the user. The Idea of
"Hand Search" is to set a filter for the caracteristics of the hand
shape you are looking for and it shows a list of handshapes that match
the filter, ready to input into a sign.

...People download Joe Martin's comparison between the Stokoe system
and SignWriting frequently (thank you, Joe, for your excellent
comparison). This is number 4 on the linguistics web page...There is
also a web version, which you do not have to download...The comparison
between the Stokoe system and SignWriting was needed back in the year
2000, because at that time people really did not know the difference
between the systems...so Joe's article helped with that transition...
