Sonification Support for Information Visualization Dense Data Displays
2016 (English)In: InfoVis Papers 2016, 2016Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
This poster presents an experiment designed to evaluate the possible benefits of sonification in information visualization. It is hypothesized, that by using musical sounds for sonification when visualizing complex data, interpretation and comprehension of the visual representation could be increased. In this evaluation of sonification in parallel coordinates and scatter plots, participants had to identify and mark different density areas in the representations. Both quantitative and qualitative results suggest a benefit of sonification. These results indicate that sonification might be useful for data exploration, and give rise to new research questions and challenges.
