This is a robust and accurate circle fit. It works well even if data
points are observed only within a small arc. This circle fit was proposed by V. Pratt in article "Direct least-squares fitting of algebraic surfaces", Computer Graphics, Vol. 21, pages 145-152 (1987). It is more stable than the simple Circle Fit by Kasa (file #5557).
Nice work! How can I modify this code to give me circle center if I already know circle radius?
Nice one. Easy to understand and use
The definition of inputs and outputs are clear enough. It is also very practical. Thank you.
I keep getting an error Newton-Pratt negative root: x=-0.000000 and Newton-Pratt will not converge. What do these mean and how do I fix it?
what is XY in code? .. declare undefined fucntion or variable . how to declare?
. plz guide me ?how to solve it?
Great work thanks very much
hello, are you have excel vba version? thank a lot!
very helpful. Thanks!
It works perfectly and helps me so much,thank you.
can anyone please tell me how to give inputs to circle fit by pratt method.
i need to fit a circle to find the curvature of a line at various points using the radius. can u suggest a way to check my results. Thank u in advance.
Thank you very much for this algorithm. I was looking for an algorithm to fit a small number of data points (around 50) to a small portion of a circle (less than 10 degrees of the outline) and found this one to work perfectly. I had previously been using the Bucher circle fit and found it to be nowhere near as accurate or stable (although it is faster).
