Examines the localization criterion for edge detection and determine the probability density function describing the edge location error. Canny (1986) defines the measure of localization as the reciprocal of the root-mean-square edge location error and formulates an expression of this measure for local maximum detectors. However, Tagare and deFigueiredo (1990) point out that an incorrect assumption is made in the calculation. The same procedure is used by Sarkar and Boyer (1991) for their localization measure for zero-crossing detectors. We modify the analysis and obtain a closed-form solution of the probability density function of the edge location error. Examination of the density function indicates the variance of the edge location error does not exist, and hence cannot be used directly as a measure of localization
