dc.description.abstractA simulation approach is given to estimating the distribution of navigational errors observed during a test of four Army map products, conducted by the US Army Combat Development Experimentation Command. Exponential and Gamma distributions are simulated with sample sizes identical to the actual data. The simulated samples are then replicated one thousand times to provide sample sizes of one thousand for key parameters such as skewness, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, range and selected quantiles. Comparison of these parameters is then made with the parameters observed in the data to determine the fit of simulated distributions.en_US
