After a review of the circle fitting issue, we recall a relatively unknown method derived from a classical geometric result. We propose an improvement of this technique by reweighting the data, iterating the procedure, and choosing at every step as the new inversion point the one diametrically opposite to the previous inversion point. © 2003 SPIE and IS&T.
