Abstract (Summary of the Work)

Digitization of Continuous objects cause loss of information because we find limitation to represent infinite precession of information of actual object. This limitation ultimately results in a many to one map from a group of objects of the real world into a single object of the Digital World. So when we make some quantitative estimation of Original object from its digital version we inevitably invite some possibility of error. By estimating the error of a digital straight line segment and approximating an arbitrary figure by sequence of straight line segment, we ultimately find an approximate estimate of error in general estimation.
