Abstract

There are several cases when tortuous continuous lines have to be discretized in order to measure length and other related quantities. In this methodological paper, we are going to demonstrate the importance of the proper sequencing (ranking) of the discrete points and call attention to some typical errors caused by improper sequencing. For demonstration, the fractal dimensions of an animal track with well-known original sequencing and for some mixed sequencing are estimated and the extent of errors is shown.
