# ComponentMeasurements properties

How do the ComponentMeasurements function computed " Area" and "Length" properties relate to the "Count" property in terms of pixels ?

In nuce; while both "Count" and "Area" can be both considered as metrics for the area covered by an object in a given black and white image (i.e. Bit type), they do not account for it in the same way.
"Count" literally and simply counts the number of pixels forming the object sensu stricto.
“Area” counts the same pixels but score them according to their relative localization to each other based on some 2*2 neighborhood rules. In this case, I believe one should not disable the CornerNeighbors option of ComponentMeasurements which is by default True.
