Yes, we added a setting in the properties file for just this sort of functionality. In the properties file, add the feature column you want summed:
> # ======== Area Based Scoring ========
> # OPTIONAL
> # You may specify a column in your per-object table which will be summed and
> # reported in place of object-counts when scoring. The typical use for this
> # is to report the areas of objects on a per-image or per-group basis.
> area_scoring_column = <NAME OF COLUMN IN DATABASE>
If this is not what you need, and you want e.g. each individual object’s area, then you’ll have to do a SQL query directly on the database. This query does that for object size:
FROM MyTable_Per_ParasitesGood, MyTable_Per_Image, MyTable_Per_ParasitesGood_Classes
AND (MyTable_Per_ParasitesGood.ParasitesGood_Number_Object_Number = MyTable_Per_ParasitesGood_Classes.ParasitesGood_Number_Object_Number)
ORDER BY Image_Metadata_Plate, Image_Metadata_Well, ABS(Image_Metadata_Site), ABS(MyTable_Per_Image.ImageNumber)
Though you’d have to modify this for your table and column names.
