The attached file ransac.py implements the RANSAC algorithm. An example image:

To run the file, save it to your computer, start IPython

In [ ]:
ipython -wthread

Import the module and run the test program

In [ ]:
import ransac

To use the module you need to create a model class with two methods

In [ ]:
def fit(self, data):
  """Given the data fit the data with your model and return the model (a vector)"""
def get_error(self, data, model):
  """Given a set of data and a model, what is the error of using this model to estimate the data """

An example of such model is the class LinearLeastSquaresModel as seen the file source (below)
