Secondary objects AreaShape_Area vs. Primary objects AreaShape_Area

#1

Does anyone know if the area that is reported from secondary objects include the entire cell (i.e., the area from the primary objects plus those added on when identifying secondary objects), or is it only those from secondary objects without the primary objects that were used as “seeds” for the module?

Hi,

It’s the total area- if you want just the added area, you should use IdentifyTeritaryObjects to compute the difference between the two.
