A Good Practices Guide for Digital Image Correlation

The International Digital Image Correlation Society (iDICs) was founded in 2015 as a nonprofit scientific and educational organization committed to training and educating users of digital image correlation (DIC) systems. iDICs is composed of members from academia, government, and industry, and develops world-recognized DIC training and certifications to improve industry practice of DIC for general applications, with emphasis on both research and establishing standards for DIC measurement techniques.

To support this mission, the iDICs Standardization, Good Practices, and Uncertainty Quantification Committee was formed in part to develop guidelines for DIC practitioners. Details of the entire development and review process can be obtained through iDICs (, but they are summarized here. The working group on Good Practices, Reporting Requirements and Terminology (a subset of the committee)developed this Good Practices Guide for DIC. The working group was composed of expert DIC practitioners (see below), including representatives from many commercial DIC software packages, with diverse experience using DIC in a myriad of applications.
