A new method for estimating the mean length of line segments observed through a square shaped sampling window is introduced. The largest advantage of the method is that there is no need to measure the exact lengths of the segments. The method is based on the ratio of two biased intensity estimates obtained from minus- and plus-sampling. This method is applied for estimating the mean length of the fibres of nanocellulose from an AFM image.
