Eagle-Eye is an application to support archery training. For archery not just the score but also the distribution and the direction/clock of the groups are of interest. The archer can check his performance and document his progress in a convenient way. He takes pictures of the target face with his mobile. The precision of the hit-recognition is far superior to the systems presented in Chanh Nguyen, Irving Lin: "Arrowsmith: Automatic Archery Scorer" and L.A. Danielescu: "OnTarget: An Electronic Archery Scoring System". Eagle-Eye does no try to recognize the arrows. Instead it uses the fact that the arrows generate holes in the target face. This is a simpler and additionally a more general approach. Eagle-Eye should work with minor modifications for other firearms too. If the user is only interested in the overall performance he has to take just a single picture at the end of the training session.
The authors of "Arrowsmith: Automatic Archery Scorer" and "OnTarget: An Electronic Archery Scoring System" use the Open CV library. Eagle-Eye uses special purpose algorithms which were implemented by the author in the programming language Go.
