Description

Humans analyze scenes by making eye-movements between fixations. Historically, visual data has been analyzed using heatmaps, looking at where each fixation was made. We have tested a novel method that sequences these fixations to further analyze the order of fixations when we process a picture. By testing this novel analysis method on data from people viewing paintings we have found that while individuals tend to move between major focal points, the pattern or sequence of movement can be broken into different clusters. These results suggest that this method is useful for seeing sub-patterns in ways that heatmaps do not allow.
