  1. The symbols in the “abbreviation” column are used to denote the performance measures throughout the manuscript. The column “category” assigns each metric to one of the following performance measure families: (1) Overlap based, (2) Volume based, (3) Pair counting based, (4) Information theoretic based, (5) Probabilistic based, and (6) Spatial distance based
