Scripts to parse the provided data and to compare saliency maps and scanpaths are also available (in the FTP containing the Training Dataset).

In particular, the following metrics are provided:

  • Comparing saliency maps:
    • Linear Correlation Coefficient (LCC)
    • Kullback-Leibler divergence (KLD)
    • Normalized scanpath saliency (NSS)
    • Area under the curve (AUC)
    • Similarity Measure (SIM)
  • Comparing scanpaths:
    • Similarity metric based on MultiMatch (Jardozka et al.), with some modifications to deal with 360º content.
