Figure 2

High range of concordance between eBURST and BURP for optimal BURP calibration. Graph showing curves for cost integers in the high concordance range. Curves labeled "Costs: 1 to 10" represent different cost values. For the curve with the overall highest concordance (Costs: 4) the first inflection point is marked (arrow) and corresponds to the first local optimum giving a good balance between concordance and percentage of excluded spa types.
