How do I combine regions of regionprops

8 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I use regionprops to get different regions within an image.
Obj = regionprops(~bw,{'Area','Extrema','Boundingbox','MajorAxisLength','MinorAxisLength','ConvexHull','Centroid'});
According to some assumptions I would like to recombine some Objs of the struct
For example I would like to combine 2 objects where the y-coordinate of the centroid is quite similar. This means, that the some values, Area, Centroid, Bounding Box have to be recalculated. What would be the correct way to do that?

I believe you can set the label to be the same. For example, make blob 3 have a label of 2 and then blob 2 will now be the old blob 2 and the old blob 3
labeledImage(labeledImage == 3) = 2; % Merge blob 3 into blob 2.
Now call regionprops
props = regionprops(labeledImage, .........

regionprops() preferred way is to use either a connected components object generated from bwconncomp() or a labeled matrix generated from bwlabel.
I don't know what FilledImage is because you have not shown your code, at least not shown it here. You can use PixelIdxList to create a binary image of the blob(s), though there may be better ways.
