Circle Fit using Landau Method



Uses a non iterative and simple geometric fit. A modified version of Landau

| Watch this File

File Information

Based on the research paper "A Simple approach for the Estimation of Circular Arc Center and Its radius", Thomas and Chan, Computer vision, graphics and image processing 45, 362-370 (1989)

All credits go to above authors and Landau who originally proposed this method. Use of geometric fit makes this more accurate than least square approximations.

How to use?
[xc,yc,R] = Landau_new(x,y);
%where x and y are column vectors with data to be fitted.
%xc and yc are the center of fitted circle with radius R.

Easy to use...Do you have a c++ version of this?

%here is a demo on how to use above function with random data. Make sure you have Landau_new.m file on the same folder as this file.

R = 6.57; xc = 12; yc = -8;
thetas = 0:pi/180:2*pi;
x = xc + R*cos(thetas);
y = yc + R*sin(thetas);
mult = 0.2;
x = x+mult*randn(size(x));
y = y+mult*randn(size(y));

[xcnew,ycnew,Rnew] = Landau_new(x,y);
xcircle = R*cos(theta')+xc;
ycircle = R*sin(theta')+yc;
axis equal;
