Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Calculate overlap and XOR images for each combination of every subset histogram image.

Usage

2
## S4 method for signature 'character'
calculate_overlaps_xor(subsets,verbose=FALSE)

Arguments

subsets

List of the subset image files. All files have to be in one folder. See the manual for more information about creating the list.

verbose

logical (default=FALSE). Change to TRUE to print the calculated values to two new files called "Results_overlaps.txt" and "Results_xor.txt" to the working directory.

Details

After saving a list containing the filenames of the subset histogram images this method calculates the XOR and overlap images/values for each combination of every image, returns the values and is able to write the values to two new files called "Results_overlaps.txt" and "Results_xor.txt" (see example section). See reference Koch et al. 2013 for more information about the calculation.

Value

The calculate_overlaps_xor() method calculates the overlap and XOR images and returns a list with two data frames containing the calculated data.
