setObjPoly: Interface to select objects within an image

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) Examples

View source: R/metrics.R

Description

setObjPoly pulls up a tcltk interface for the user to select an object from the image. getObjPoly returns the coordinates the user selected.

Usage

1
2

Arguments

image

an imageMatrix object

Value

A vector of x coordinates and y coordinates corresponding to the object selected in the image.

Note

These two functions are used to hand-select an object in an image, so that metrics can be extracted. Thanks to http://www.sciviews.org/_rgui/tcltk/InteractiveTkrPlot.html, which outlines many key concepts used for these functions.
