Construction of saliency map in multimedia data is useful for applications in multimedia like object segmentation, quality assessment, and object recognition. In this paper, we propose a novel saliency map model called Gabor & Curvelets based Saliency Map (GCSMP) relying on 2D Gabor and Curvelet transforms. Compared with the traditional model based on DOG and wavelets, our model takes advantage of Gabor transform's spatial localization and Curvelet transform's edge and directional information. We also discuss the influence of center bias and object detectors in our model. Empirical validations on standard dataset demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed technique.
