measure_projection — Extract a gray value profile perpendicular to a rectangle or annular arc.
measure_projection extracts a one-dimensional gray value
profile perpendicular to a rectangle or annular arc. This is done by
gray values in “slices” perpendicular to the major axis of the
rectangle or arc. The sampling is done at subpixel positions in the image
Image at integer row and column distances (in the
coordinate frame of the rectangle) from the center of the rectangle.
Since this involves some calculations which can be used repeatedly
in several projections, the operator
is used to perform these calculations only once, thus increasing
the speed of
Since there is a trade-off between accuracy and speed in the
subpixel calculations of the gray values, different interpolation
schemes can be selected in
interpolation only influences rectangles not aligned with the image
axes). The measure object generated with

If the parameter values are correct the operator
returns the value TRUE. Otherwise an exception is raised.
