Eye movements contain a wealth of information about how we process visual information. However, typical visual representations of gaze only reflect a single feature such as the current fixation point. As eye tracking technology becomes more affordable and ubiquitous it is important to consider the entire design space for visualizing eye movements. The Iris system allows users to quickly design visualizations to represent gaze patterns in real time. The visualization can be manipulated to represent different features of gaze including current fixation, duration, and saccades. Stylistic elements can also be adjusted such as color, opacity, and smoothness to give users creative and detailed control over the design of their gaze visualization.
