Setting the scale for scanner or camera-based imaging platforms

Larry York

By default, RhizoVision Explorer will report lengths, areas, and volumes in pixel units. To return physical units, the user must provide information about the physical size of a pixel in their image. This guide explains how to do that, and is generalizable to other scanner or camera-based platforms.

If you use this guide to set up a scanner, scan roots, and report measurements in presentations or publications, please cite this repository.
