A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) eye tracking study
Eye tracking is used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) to determine what forecasters focus on, what their gaze captures and what information is most important to them.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) uses eye tracking to understand how forecasters handle increased amount of data. Eye tracking reveals what forecasters focus on, the frequency of their gaze, and what type of information is most important to them. By using eye tracking the team got a deeper understanding of how forecasters think during the weather warning decision process.
Watch this video where NOAA shares their experiences of using eye tracking for better understanding forecasters' reading strategies of radar screens.
These insights into forecasters’ decision-making and human–computer interaction can help to design suitable forecast systems and interfaces that will facilitate more accurate information processing.
Eye tracking data is used to observe how operators look at the various scenes and if they view all the 'mandatory areas of focus'. This information can be used to illustrate the operators' visual patterns and determine the camera layout and orientation which provides the best visibility.Learn more
The University of Birmingham used eye tracking to examine how different operators perform road traffic control tasks and make decisions based on noisy data streams from various sensing technologies and historical data.Learn more
Swedish Civil Aviation Administration uses eye tracking as a skills assessment tool and to identify required system design changes.Learn more
