Measurement strategy is discussed in the article. It is important to optimise the data selection (sampling) from the object for the determination of its geometrical features within some limits of accuracy. The minimal and maximal intervals of measurement must be selected ensuring the maximal efficiency of operation and the accuracy as well. In machine engineering the typical case is in the calibration of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) as it is a quite complicated task because of the variety of accuracy parameters to be checked and the high accuracy that must be assured. Some new techniques for the two‐ and three‐dimensional measurements are discussed in this paper leading to a more efficient calibration process. This is relevant to machine engineering where geometric accuracy parameters are to be determined, to the geodetic measurements where slopes of terrain, area flatness and volumetric features are surveyed, in structural engineering, etc.
