Eyetrace is a tool for analysis of eye-tracking data. It has the approach to bunch a variety of different evaluation methods for a large share of eye trackers supporting scientific work and medical diagnosis.
To allow EyeTrace to be compatible to different eye trackers, an additional tool called Eyetrace Butler is used. The Eyetrace Butler performs a data preprocessing and conversion for analysis with Eyetrace. It provides plugins for different eye trackers and converts their data into a format that can be imported and used by Eyetrace.
