An open-source application for biological image analysis
Python
Latest commit 0d684c0 Sep 25, 2017 @AnneCarpenter AnneCarpenter committed with 0x00b1 Documentation - MeasureImageSkeleton (#3210)
Two Qs:
1) In rc5 this module doesn't have a nice bold heading when help is opened in CP's GUI. But the code looks like other modules that do (e.g., ConvertObjectsToImage) so I'm not sure why; maybe this was fixed later? But I'm looking at rc5 (I think).
2) I don't fundamentally understand how this differs from MeasureObjectSkeleton. Is the idea here that you measure endpoints and branchpoints irrespective of objects being identified? If so, please add this to the end of the intro help "Unlike **MeasureObjectSkeleton**, **MeasureImageSkeleton** measures branchpoints and endpoints throughout the entire image rather than associated with individual objects."
