  • Peak System Digitizing Error

    Greetings to all.
    I have a question for users of the Peak System 3/ D digitizing
    sytem. A graduate student of mine is in the process of digitizing
    elite long jump performances for take off comparisons of Kinematic
    data ie. linear and angular displacements and velocities.
    My question is:
    What level of digitizing error is acceptable for reasonable
    comparisons. The peak system automatically indicates when the
    error is more than one percent during the digitizing process. At
    what level above 1% should the researcher consider the data as
    unacceptable when comparing performances with different degrees
    of error.
    We have redigitized the tree standard to varify that the points
    are correct but now need to know if we can correct for the error and
    how to locate the primary source.
    We would appreciate any opinions or advice as we are at a
    critical point in presenting and writing up the results of the study.
    Thankyou in advance.
    Tony Bauer.
