Eye Tracking Annotation Tools

I recently attended a workshop in Aarhus discussing Methods in Mobile Eye Tracking. Several good talks there and discussions, including one on annotation tools for mobile video data. While most eye tracking manufactures provide software tools with their hardware, there are also tools from academia that are open source and hardware agnostic and can provide some features lacking in the commercial software. Here is a short list of such tools available:

The first 2 are Mac specific and ELAN supports Win, Linux & Mac

Video Coder (Foulsham Lab, University of Essex)

RIT Code (Pelz Lab, Rochester Institute of Technology)

ELAN (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, The Language Archive, Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
