I would like to export to a txt file the position of the stage that is recorded in the ome-xml metadata.
I tried to use the OMEVisual plug-in but without success as I have a message saying that I need to open the images with SCIFIO (even when opening the image with SCIFIO).
I found these functions but I didn’t manage to use them. I am not sure what the variable “value” is for? also I am not sure if the functions below work on the ome-xml metadata or just the “standart” metadata
run("Bio-Formats Macro Extensions"); Ext.getMetadataValue(field, value); -- Obtains the specified metadata field's value. Ext.getSeriesMetadataValue(field, value) -- Obtains the specified series metadata field's value. Ext.getPlanePositionX(positionX, no) -- Obtains the X coordinate of the stage for the no'th plane -- or NaN if none. Ext.getPlanePositionY(positionY, no) -- Obtains the Y coordinate of the stage for the no'th plane -- or NaN if none.
The fields i am interested in are called StagePosY and StagePosX.
Any help would be very welcome,
