Changing the confidence level

You can adjust the statistical calculations during a Positional Accuracy Assessment session by modifying the confidence level. This is the level of confidence for the evaluation layer. The value for this field can be 90, 95, or 99. The statistics are recalculated appropriately when this value is changed.

When the confidence level is changed, the statistics for the active points are automatically recalculated.
