Abstract
It is pointed out that the von-Mises-distribution can replace the Gaussian distribution for circular or spherical vector fields, i.e. BRDF data obtained from a variety of technical surfaces by stray light measuring or sensing. For the purpose of in line quality control formulae for the parameters corresponding to mean and variance in Gaussian distributions as well as parameter tests and confidence intervals for circular unimodal vector fields are given. Finally, measurement and simulation results are compared to circular statistical inference.
