This paper considers the problem of measuring properties of digitized straight lines from the viewpoint of measurement methodology. The measurement and estimation process is described in detail, revealing the importance of a step called ``characterization'' which was not recognized explicitly before. Using this new concept, BLUE (Best Linear Unbiased) estimators are found. These are calculated for various properties of digitized straight lines, and are briefly compared to previous work.
