Eye Tracking: What it teaches us about dashboard design

What elements subconsciously catch your eye? Tableau has conducted several eye tracking studies to better understand this behavior.

See an updated version of this presentation here.

Join Amy and Andy as they discuss how certain design elements affect where people look on dashboards. They'll share the exciting eye tracking data collected, and distill their findings into design tips that will help you make more effective dashboards.

This webinar features a CTT Wireless dashboard, which was built by Dundas Data Visualization, and featured in The Big Book of Dashboards.

Check out the rest of the Building dashboards that inform and inspire webinar series.
