Update 1.2 of Blickshift Analytics

Today, we’re releasing a new update for Blickshift Analytics. It is version 1.2 and provides you with the following highlights:

A great new feature is improved support of Pupil Labs data. The import and analysis of Pupil Labs data was already possible with older version of Blickshift Analytics. However, it was too complex so far. All steps, which had been done manually so far, are done automatically now! After the selection of the directory, where the Pupil Labs data is located, Blickshift Analytics identifies all files exported with Pupil Player. Next, these files are imported automatically. A workflow is created in the workflow explorer, which computes all necessary coordinate transformations for you. With a few mouse clicks Blickshift Analytics is ready now for an advanced analysis of your Pupil Labs data!

Please visit our YouTube channel and watch the latest video about the new Pupil Labs importer or get an overview about some of the possibilities to analyse Pupil Labs data with our software.

Besides this great highlight we improved Blickshift Analytics with the integration of many small new features to provide you with an even better analysis:



  • Introduced support for normalized coordinates and different coordinate origins on Heat Maps, Scan Paths and in the AOI Editor, i.e. for supporting coordinates between 0 and 1
  • Ignoring coordinates is now configurable, instead of being fixed to (0,0). Additionally, a threshold value from another column can be used.



  • Added “GazedAtBy” to Gaze Duration Statistics, which can be used to determine how many participants looked at an AOI
  • Added an option to aggregate via average for the Time to First Fixation



  • Significantly improved performance on several nodes
  • Several smaller improvements and bugfixes
