Advanced Options – Bounding Boxes

Bounding Boxes add a rectangular area around objects in the field of view.  They are all oriented along the same axis and sometimes include more than one object. 

Bounding Boxes represent the first step in the process of separating light into individual objects, or de-blending.  As more sophisticated algorithms are applied to the images, the light is assigned to individual objects. 

After de-blending, the objects appearing in the same bounding box are identified as separate photometric objects that you can see when you select Photometric Objects in the Drawing Options box.
