Test plan, verification of a detection
In case test targets are not left in place after testing and excavated, it is good practice to re-measure their positions (using the same measurement device) and compare them to the original position readings for quality assurance. The final test target positions should be used as ground truth against which the detector declarations (operator markings) are scored.
