Abstract

The growing use of the web browser in HCI and data visualization presents an opportunity for advancement in eye tracking experiment software. Interactive experiments with features such as dynamic areas of interest and scrolling are difficult and time consuming to analyze with existing tools. EyeSite builds on open-source eye tracking software by communicating in real time with the web browser. This communication is used to transform screen-space gaze coordinates into coordinates on the web page. Point-to-element mapping is performed using DOM elements. EyeSite supports a wide variety of eye tracking hardware and software, remote experimental trials, and easy integration with common research workflows.
