A napari plugin for measuring properties of labeled objects based on scikit-image

Usage: measure region properties

From the menu Tools > Measurement > Regionprops (nsr) you can open a dialog where you can choose an intensity image, a corresponding label image and the features you want to measure:


If you want to interface with the labels and see which table row corresponds to which labeled object, use the label picker and

activate the show selected checkbox.

If you closed a table and want to reopen it, you can use the menu Tools > Measurements > Show table (nsr) to reopen it.

You just need to select the labels layer the properties are associated with.

For visualizing measurements with different grey values, as parametric images, you can double-click table headers.


Usage: measure point intensities

Analogously, also the intensity and coordinates of point layers can be measured using the menu Tools > Measurement > Measure intensity at point coordinates (nsr).

Also these measurements can be visualized by double-clicking table headers:



Usage, programmatically

You can also control the tables programmatically. See this

example notebook for details on regionprops and

this example notebook for details on measuring intensity at point coordinates.


The user can select categories of features for feature extraction in the user interface. These categories contain measurements from the scikit-image regionprops list of measurements library:

  • size:

    • area

    • bbox_area

    • convex_area

    • equivalent_diameter

  • intensity:

    • max_intensity

    • mean_intensity

    • min_intensity

    • standard_deviation_intensity (extra_properties implementation using numpy)

  • perimeter:

    • perimeter

    • perimeter_crofton

  • shape

    • major_axis_length

    • minor_axis_length

    • orientation

    • solidity

    • eccentricity

    • extent

    • feret_diameter_max

    • local_centroid

    • roundness as defined for 2D labels by ImageJ

    • circularity as defined for 2D labels by ImageJ

    • aspect_ratio as defined for 2D labels by ImageJ

  • position:

    • centroid

    • bbox

    • weighted_centroid

  • moments:

    • moments

    • moments_central

    • moments_hu

    • moments_normalized

This napari plugin was generated with Cookiecutter using with @napari's cookiecutter-napari-plugin template.
