To identify which grain is which -- FeatureData

Can anyone help me identify the grain ID number? 

For example: Here is the FeatureData of 5 grains 

I need to specify Euler Angles to the respective grains; I'm not able to identify which grain is which in the final geometry. 
For 5 grains, it is easier because it is just 5, and based on volume and the number of neighbours, I can identify them. 
For a large number of grains, say 50, it will be impossible doing this way. 

Is there any easier way of doing this? 


My other question is --
Finally, I need the rotated stiffness matrix of individual grains. That is why I require to identify every grain - use their Euler Angles and rotate the stiffness matrix accordingly. If this technique is directly available on Dream.3D let me know.

The “FeatureID” is the “Grain ID”. Are you wanting a better way to “Visually”, i.e. within ParaView, identify each grain?

I don’t think there is a filter that can rotate a stiffness matrix by Euler Angles. You will need to perform this outside of DREAM.3D at this point in time.
