##### Mean and Median of Pixel Values in an Image

Calculates the mean or median of the pixel values in a pixel image.

Keywords
methods, spatial, univar
##### Usage
## S3 method for class 'im'
## mean(x, trim=0, na.rm=TRUE, ...)

## S3 method for class 'im' ## median(x, na.rm=TRUE) [R < 3.4.0] ## median(x, na.rm=TRUE, ...) [R >= 3.4.0]

##### Arguments
x

A pixel image (object of class "im").

na.rm

Logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.

trim

The fraction (0 to 0.5) of pixel values to be trimmed from each end of their range, before the mean is computed.

Ignored.

##### Details

These functions calculate the mean and median of the pixel values in the image x.

An object of class "im" describes a pixel image. See im.object) for details of this class.

The function mean.im is a method for the generic function mean for the class "im". Similarly median.im is a method for the generic median.

If the image x is logical-valued, the mean value of x is the fraction of pixels that have the value TRUE. The median is not defined.

If the image x is factor-valued, then the mean of x is the mean of the integer codes of the pixel values. The median is are not defined.

Other mathematical operations on images are supported by Math.im, Summary.im and Complex.im.

Other information about an image can be obtained using summary.im or quantile.im.

##### Value

A single number.

Math.im for other operations.

Generics and default methods: mean, median.

• mean.im
• median.im
##### Examples
# NOT RUN {
X <- as.im(function(x,y) {x^2}, unit.square())
mean(X)
median(X)
mean(X, trim=0.05)
# }
