Hi all,

does anyone knows of a method to get the standard deviation for a ZAxisProfile?

Thanks in advance

Hi all,

Thanks in advance

Here is a macro that gets the standard deviation of a z axis profile, as well as the mean, min and max:

```
means = newArray(nSlices);
for (i=1; i<=nSlices; i++) {
setSlice(i);
getStatistics(area, mean);
means[i-1] = mean;
}
Array.getStatistics(means, min, max, mean, stdDev);
print("");
print("n: "+nSlices);
print("mean: "+mean);
print("stdDev: "+stdDev);
print("min: "+min);
print("max: "+max);
```

In case it is useful: one of the scripts of the BAR Update site plots standard deviations in live mode (BAR>Analysis>Multichannel ZT-axis Profile). Source here. A summary here.
