Eye Tracking Data Obtained From Free Observation of Moving Elements

The precise description of this dataset, as well as of the experimental procedure from which it was obtained, is provided in the following paper:

Four animations were used as stimuli (Random, Radial, Spiral, and Volcano motion), each lasting 15 seconds.
Fourty-four participants were involved, and each attended the experimental test nine times, subdivided into three sessions (each session in a different day for each participant).
In each session, the participant repeated the test three times ("trials").
In each trial, the four animations were displayed in random order, one after the other.
No calibration procedure of the eye tracker was performed.

The GazePoint GP3 HD eye tracker (150 Hz) was employed to record gaze data. The meanings of the columns in the .csv files of the dataset are described in the document OPEN GAZE API BY GAZEPOINT.

The dataset contains one file for each trial and each animation, i.e., in total, 1,584 files (36 files for each participant: 3 sessions x 3 trials x 4 animations).
The file name structure is pptttestoaaa.csv , where:

  • pp = participant (01 - 44)
  • tt = trial (01 - 09; Session 1: 01 - 03, Session 2: 04 - 06, Session 3: 07 - 09)
  • o = animation order (1 - 4: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th animation)
  • aaa = animation type (ran = Random, rad = Radial, spi = Spiral, vol = Volcano)
