region of interest:  (Feature Mapping) Defines the area of the input raster objects to be considered for all subsequent processing while that region is selected.  A selected region of interest affects the categories that can be defined, limits the area in which cells that satisfy the decision rule are searched for, and defines the region of the feature mapped raster for which measurements are tabulated in Feature Mapping’s statistical report.  Feature marking is also limited to the region of interest.  (See: categories, feature mapping.)
