Find Feature Boundary Element Fractions

Group (Subgroup)

Statistics (Morphological)


This Filter calculates the fraction of Elements of each Feature that are on the "surface" of that Feature. The Filter simply iterates through all Elements asking for the Feature that owns them and if the Element is a "surface" Element. Each Feature counts the total number of Elements it owns and the number of those Elements that are "surface" Elements. The fraction is then stored for each Feature.
