DOVES, a database of visual eye movements, is a set of eye movements collected from 29 human observers as they viewed 101 natural calibrated images. Recorded using a high-precision dual-Purkinje eye tracker, the database consists of around 30 000 fixation points, and is believed to be the first large-scale database of eye movements to be made available to the vision research community. The database, along with MATLAB functions for its use, may be downloaded freely from, and used without restriction for educational and research purposes, providing that this paper is cited in any published work. This paper documents the acquisition procedure, summarises common eye movement statistics, and highlights numerous research topics for which DOVES may be used.
