Source Extraction Properties
This Brief defines the parameters measured using the MExtract package. Source Extraction is also known by the names "image segmentation" and "image labeling" in various applications. This procedure identifies, or detects individual objects or image features in one or more images and computes some 40 properties for each detection. Source Extraction provides numerous options for controlling the detection and processing of information. The procedure may also be used to detect objects or features that are common to an image set or that vary among the images. Source extraction is handled using the Source Extraction package in Mira Pro x64 and Mira MX x64. This Brief describes the measured properties and discusses how various properties are affected by the threshold sensitivity.
