Estimating a smooth precision-recall curve



A set of MATLAB functions for computing a smooth approximation to the precision-recall curve.

prc_conthist(x, binWidth, color, linewidth)
% Plots a contour histogram.
% Usage:
%     prc_conthist(x, binWidth, color, linewidth)
% Arguments:
%     x: data
%     binWidth: width of each histogram bin
%     color: line color of contour
%     linewidth: width of contour
