[vtkusers] smoothing errors

Dear friends,
Although I have read both vtkusers guide and other Vtk main book, I am not exactly sure about the followings. If someone knows, please help me.
I use vtkSmoothPolyDataFilter, to smooth a surface. It smoots the surface. But, at the end of the smoothing process, I want to display smoothing errors. For this purpose I use the   functions GenerateErrorScalars, and GrenerateErrorScalarsOn. When I use these functions, in the render window, smoothed surface is drawn with various colors. I think, these colors correspond to different error values. Here I have the following questions:
1- How is the smoothing error computed? (i.e, what is the error measure?Laplacian smoothing is used but error measure?)
2- How can I obtain the numerical values of these errors?
3- How can I draw a graphic to legend these error values?

If someone can help me about my above problems, I'll be very glad.

Best Regards.
