Some results of spot modelling for 18 light curves of AB Dor are presented, covering the period 1980-1992. Using the technique of Budding and Zeilik (1987) to determine spot parameters, it is shown that photospheric spots on this star tend to form in one of two longitude belts separated by approximately 180 degrees. This can be compared to the similar active longitudes proposed by Zeilik et al.(1988, 1989) for the RS CVn stars SV Cam and RT And. The change in overall light level of AB Dor over the past 12 years indicates the possibility of a solar-type spot cycle although more photometric observations will be needed to confirm this.
