We propose a general method to determine the material parameters for arbitrary shapes of cloak based on the Poisson's equation to map the coordinate transformation. As a result, we can obtain the diverse deformation material properties and then the field distribution. This method, compared with the previous technique presented in literature, can determine the countless transformation forms, so it may provide the opportunity to choose the optimization transformation and the material parameter map which is easily to be fabricated using the metamaterial technology.
