Performance Measures for Geometric Fitting in the NIST Algorithm Testing and Evaluation Program for Coordinate Measurement Systems

Published

Author(s)

Ted Hopp, M Levenson

Abstract

The Algorithm Testing and Evaluation Program for Coordinate Measurement Systems (ATEP-CMS) is a special test service offered under the NIST SP-250 calibration program. ATEP-CMS evaluates the performance of geometric fitting software used in coordinate measurement systems. This report documents and explains the rational of the performance measures used in ATEP-CMS and analyzes the uncertainties of those measures.
