Abstract

This report constitutes a {\em user manual} for software developed at the National Physical Laboratory to calculate the locations of the centres of gravity of the protrusions of a calibrated cross-grating artefact from measurements of the artefact. The calculated locations may then be compared with corresponding reference locations. The software enables users to process an ASCII file containing values of a surface measured on a two-dimensional grid of points. The software is provided in the form of a standalone executable and the locations of the centres of gravity of the protrusions are written to an ASCII results file. The user may also provide a second ASCII file containing reference locations of the centres of gravity of the protrusions. The software applies a transformation to the reference locations, determines the differences between the calculated locations and the transformed reference locations, and writes those differences to the ASCII results file.
