Find Feature Largest Cross-Section Areas

Group (Subgroup)

Statistics (Morphological)


This Filter calculates the largest cross-sectional area on a user-defined plane for all Features. The Filter simply iterates through all Cells (on each section) asking for Feature that owns them. On each section, the count of Cells for each Feature is then converted to an area and stored as the LargestCrossSection if the area for the current section is larger than the existing LargestCrossSection for that Feature.
