  1. Likelihood treatment, tag resolution, p-value for Wilcoxon rank sums test, and median, 95% quantile, and maximum MAE values for each treatment/tag resolution combination. Median MAE values significantly (p < 0.05) better (lower) than the depth-only treatment are denoted by an asterisk (*), while treatments significantly worse (larger) than the depth-only treatment are denoted by a minus sign ()
