Eye movement recordings produce large quantities of spatiotemporal data, and are more and more frequently used as an aid to gain further insight into human thinking in usability studies in GIScience domain among others. After reviewing some common visualization methods for eye movement data, the limitations of these methods are discussed. This paper proposes an approach that enables the use of the Space-Time-Cube (STC) for representation of eye movement recordings. Via interactive functions in

Finally, the advantages and limitations of using the STC to visually analyze eye movement recordings are summarized and discussed.
