BeanCounter.m is the main script responsible for analyzing EM images. Users can pass images into this script through a graphical user interface (GUI) and the script will output a single excel sheet containing particle statistics. If the user selects an entire directory for analysis, BeanCounter.m will aggregate each individual excel sheet into a single excel document. Users can specify the output location of these excel files using the GUI. The excel sheet contains: minor edge length, minor edge length error, aspect ratio, aspect ratio error, corner rounding, corner rounding error, goodness of fit, area, perimeter, and the shape classification or identifier. All errors are determined by the confidence interval of the fit. The shape identifier is a number that corresponds to a particular shape (i.e. 1: rod, 2: circle, 3: triangle, 4: square, 6: hexagon). The GUI has additional options for specifying output images and processing parameters.
