Database Description

Eye-tracking data were collected in order to better understand how people look to images under natural viewing conditions. In the experiment, the twenty-nine source images of the LIVE image quality assessment database [1] were used as stimuli, and twenty participants were requested to look at the images in a natural way (“view it as you normally would�. A map indicating the natural scene saliency (NSS) was derived from the eye-tracking data.
More details on the experimental set-up and results can be found in the references given above.
