<p>Abstract—This paper describes and demonstrates the operation and performance of an algorithm for segmenting connected points into a combination of representations such as lines, circular, elliptical and superelliptical arcs, and polynomials. The algorithm has a number of interesting properties including being scale invariant, nonparametric, general purpose, and efficient.</p>
