Code to compute the saliency metrics as used for benchmarking saliency models in

Note that the binary human fixation map (zero matrix with 1s at exact locations of fixations) is used as the fixationMap argument to most of the metrics. If, however, a continuous map is required (e.g. for CC and similarity computations), then the binary human fixation map is blurred. Specifically, we use the antonioGaussian.m low-pass filter with cut off frequency fc = 8 cycles per image, which is approximately equivalent to 1 degree of visual angle.

Note that to compute EMD, we use the FastEMD approximation provided by Ofir Pele. Please download and compile the FastEMD code available at
