Abstract :
[en] The planimetric accuracy of old maps can be calculated using cartometric methods like Helmert transformations. As the choice of control points for these transformations is somewhat arbitrary, this may cause stochastic variations in the results. This paper addresses these stochastic variations and proposes to apply Bayesian data analysis methods to quantify the uncertainty of the cartometric calculations. The paper shows that the Bayesian data analysis is consistent with the deterministic calculations, and it provides safe statistical bounds for the results.
