This article is devoted to the description of a free, extensible and open source software system designed for eye tracking data analysis. Authors of this article examine not only the main methods and functions of the system core that address gaze data import, data analysis (filtering, smoothing, oculomotor events detection, estimation of events’ characteristics and others) and visualization, but also scheduled improvements of system’s functional features

Keywords: eye tracking, statistical software, oculomotor events detection, R programming language

Column: Instruments
