  6. SCOUT.INTERACTIONS Contains an array of interactions, one for each visitor

    interaction detected by the system. { "Id": 2, "ScoutId": 1, "Duration": 3.1874993, "Waypoints": [[976,375],[1120,208],[1626,301]], "WaypointWidths": [[178,323],[176,207],[162,300]], "WaypointTimes": [7.642e-06,1.5644069,3.1874993], "Processed": true, "EnteredAt": "2016-09-16T20:15:00Z" } • Id Is a database identifier for the interaction. This is automatically generated by the database. • ScoutId Is used to match the interaction with the source scout. The corresponding scout in scouts.json will have the same Id. • Duration This is the total amount of time (in seconds) that the scout observed this interaction occurring. • Waypoints Is the path (in pixels) that the interaction took through the calibration frame. The address [0,0] corresponds with the top-left corner of the image. • WaypointWidths This is the matching size (in pixels) of the interaction at each step along the path 'Waypoints'. The size of WaypointWidths and Waypoints will always be the same. • WaypointTimes The offset time (in seconds) from 'EnteredAt' that each step along the path in waypoint occurred. • Processed Has this interaction been 'processed' and included as part of the summary as defined in scout_summaries.json? • EnteredAt The time the interaction begun. This date/time is in UTC and deliberately rounded to the nearest 15 minutes. The rounding is an additional privacy protection measure, clumping multiple interactions into occurring at the same time. This to make it more difficult to cross-reference interaction data with other sources of metadata.
