- Mauldon (1998) suggested end-point estimators of areal frequency and mean trace length for a
planar sampling window which were recently proved to be unbiased maximum likelihood estimators
by Lyman (2003). The present paper is to expand the concept and applicability of the endpoint
estimators to those for a general non-planar sampling window. The generalized end-point
estimators are verified and its applicability for variable discontinuity orientation is checked by
Monte Carlo simulation. Standard deviation of estimation error and estimation efficiency of areal
frequency and mean trace length are also considered.
