eye tracker research on maps
Is anyone aware of research on using eye tracking to represent how people read maps? I've been reading about eye tracking for web site usability:

Mapping Center Answer:
Eye tracking is a method commonly used by cartographers to study how users read maps. I saw a presentation on this by Sara Fabrikant. Here is a paper she wrote on the subject:
Fabrikant, S. I. 2007. Sequence Analysis of Eye Movement Data. Second Eye Tracking and Multimedia Workshop (ETMW ’07), Dijon, France, Nov. 22-23, 2007
I note from her curriculum vitae that she also gave a lecture on this topic late last year.
Others have also used this method for cartographic research, but this is the most recent work I know of.
