User interfaces for searching and browsing collections of music often use nonaudio for presenting information about the contents of the collection. This study reviews the literature to unify the various ways in which auditory spatialization can be used to augment the presentation of data. The authors examined 22 user interfaces that use such concepts as auditory icons, perceived location, amplitude panning, and a usability evaluation. Commonalities among the designs are discussed including the chosen spatialization approaches and evaluation methods.
