Sonic Exploration of Thematic Information
The field of auditory display seeks to use sound to communicate data. Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory developed a prototype for the sonification (sonic visualization) of large document databases as a complement to the SPIRE text visualization system. This prototype, dubbed loudSPIRE, is unique in its use of multiple simultaneous sonification methods, organized by an auditory display schema.
