I am looking for a way where I can specify ‘ImageNumber’.
In the output of CellProfiler measurements, the ‘ImageNumber’ column, sequentially outputs a number for each image in a pipeline (for example, in an analysis of 1000 images, ImageNumber is 1 - 1000).
Is there a way where I can specify the image number in my loaddata.csv?
In other words, I want to provide the image number rather than have CP number my images.
The reason is that, for a variety of logistical and complex reason, I need to break up a data set into many-many batches for analysis and I need each image to have a unique ImageNumber.
Ideally, I would like to have CP export an ‘ImageNumber’ that is sequential across many separate pipeline runs (ie. run#1 uses ‘ImageNumber’ 1 -1000, run #2 uses ‘ImageNumber’ 1001-2000, run #3 ‘ImageNumber’ 2001-3000)
I’ve tried adding an ‘ImageNumber’ column in the loaddata.csv, but CP doesn’t use the data in that column imagenumber in the output. Other variations of columns for image number, such as ‘Image_ImageNumber’ cause unrecoverable errors in the loaddata module.
