Planar images of powder particles or sand grains can be interpreted as “figures”, i.e., equivalence classes of directlycongruent compact sets. The paper introduces a concept of set-valuedmeans and real-valued variances for samples of such figures. Inobtaining these results, the images are registered to have similarlocations and orientations. The method is applied to find a mean figure of a sample of polygonal particles.
