measuRing: Detection and Control of Tree-Ring Widths on Scanned Image Sections of Dendrochronological Samples

This package assists in the identification of ring borders on scanned image sections from dendrochronological samples. It processes the image section and computes luminance data from images producing a matrix of gray values and a time series of smoothed gray values. Luminance data is plotted on segmented images for users to perform both: visual identification of ring borders, or control of automatic detection. The package provides functions to visually include/exclude ring borders on the R graphical device, or automatically detect ring borders using a linear detection algorithm. This algorithm detects ring borders according to negative extreme values in the smoothed time-series of gray values.
