I’m planning to use Cellprofiler as an image analysis tool for my engineering thesis. Currently I’m using it with existing photographic data from previous trials conducted with a 2D Block Model. The aim of the project is to better understand the mechanics of material swell in block cave mining.
Essentially the model is packed or ‘loaded’ with a given material (in this case wooden blocks, however gravel etc. may be used in future) which is then withdrawn at the base of the model and collapse that results is logged with a series of photographs (1 photo each time a block is withdrawn). At this point some pictures will probably tell a thousand words:
The aim is to use Cellprofiler to identify the voids and then measure/output a couple of things:
- The area in each image that contains no blocks. (DONE, using the MeasureImageAreaOccupied module).
- Define a grid over the image, and do the same as in ‘1.’ but for each cell within the grid.
I’m struggling with this second goal, is it possible to use the DefineGrid function in this manner? Essentially I’d like to make it so that the MeasureImageAreaOccupied module runs within each cell of the grid, for every image in the series? I’ve attached the (very basic) pipeline that I’m using to measure the overall void area. I’ve tried adapting this to use the DefineGrid function but either I’m doing something wrong when setting it up or else or it can’t be used in the manner I would like…
