Similar to the Scanner Alignment, ScanImage can align the stage (motors) to the laser scanners. This process is semi-automated and takes advantage of ScanImage's Motion Correction framework. After a successful calibration, ScanImage can perform measurements in stage units and can move the stage to defined positions.

Stages can have play in their gears. During calibration it is advantageous to always finish a move from the same direction to minimize the effect of backlash.
