High-angular-resolution electron backscattered diffraction (HR-EBSD) has been developed to study local elastic strains in crystals. An integrated digital image correlation (DIC) procedure for high resolution diffraction patterns, as recently proposed to bypass several problems of the conventional cross-correlation-based algorithm, was implemented. Through two examples of experimental data where the algorithm was used and compared to conventional means, the current paper illustrates the benefits of the integrated DIC method. It is found that both measurement uncertainty and computation time were simultaneously reduced. Moreover, an enhanced robustness was obtained for relatively high misorientations relative to methods based on cross-correlation. Different computing conditions are explored on experimental data. A number of practical usage conditions are proposed to achieve better precision and speed.
