I must admit that it is not quite clear to me what you want to do.
What do you mean with BGP file? Do you mean the Affymetrix "*.bgp" file?
This file is not necessary since it contains redundant information
already present in the "*.pgf" file.
What do you mean with bgrd_mean and pm_mean?
The mask for genomic bgrd is -1 (32768) and for antigenomic bgrd -2
Using "export.scheme()" you can extract the information from the
different scheme trees, see "?validTreetype", e.g. the "*.scm" tree
contains the (x,y) coordinates and mask for the UNIT_ID and PROBESET_ID.
I am not sure if this answers your question.
