    • Beyond visualization: on using sonification methods to make business processes more accessible to users 

      Hildebrandt, Tobias; Kriglstein, Simone; Rinderle-Ma, Stefanie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Visualization of business process models with large numbers of process activities and running instances in different execution states show various limitations. Hence, using sonification methods becomes a promising idea to ...
    • Capturing audience experience via mobile biometrics 

      Fan, Yuan-Yi; Weber, René (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Different from computer vision based approaches in audience participation research, such as in Glimmer [1] and in Flock [2], this paper presents a mobile approach to collecting and visualizing bodily responses from audience ...
    • Chirping Stars 

      Vogt, Katharina; Goudarzi, Visda; Höldrich, Robert (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Chirping Stars is a concept for a tape piece of a sonification of Twitter data. A snapshot of the popularity of musicians, randomly drawn in March 2012, yielded eight of the most popular stars at that time. Data of their ...
    • CircoSonic: a sonification of CIRCOS, a circular graph of pair wise table data 

      Nguyen, Vinh Xuan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      This paper presents, applies and evaluates “CircoSonic,” an interactive sonification of “Circos.” It outlines the development of modifying a gaming engine to replicate Circos, a circular graph for comparing pair wise ...
    • Correlations and scatterplots: A comparison of auditory and visual modes of learning and testing 

      Nees, Michael A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      An experiment examined brief, computer-based modules for teaching and conducting achievement testing of introductory concepts related to correlations and scatterplots. Participants experienced either auditory or visual ...
