Crowd Counting Evaluation
- We focus on crowd counting on drone-captured scenes. In particular, given an input frame in bird-view, we require a counting method to estimate the number of people and density map in an image accurately.
- For this task, the performance is evaluated by both MAE and MSE scores, same as in . Notably, the MAE score is used as the primary metric for ranking methods. The metrics are described in the following table.
|MAE||0||Mean absolute error between the predicted number of people and ground-truth in evaluation|
|MSE||0||Mean squared error between the predicted number of people and ground-truth in evaluation|
The evaluation code for crowd counting is available on the VisDrone github.
