Hello all, i have a problem with ellipse fitting experiment i'm trying
to do for my class:

In an experiment of image processing, we have collected the scattered
data of an ellipse, which is contained in the data file and figure
attached in zip file.
Question asked is to  estimate the location, size and orientation of
the ellipse from the scattered data and to draw the ellipse which best
fits the scattered data based on the estimation results.

How would i go about using that set of data into my function? I tried
to open a file with data, but all i get
>> load('C:\Users\George\Documents\ellipse_v7.mat')

And nothing happens after that.

Any help or pointers would be greatly appriciated. I'm not great with
Matlab, but i'm trying to learn
