Soundscape Mapping: A Tool for Evaluating Sounds and Auditory Environments
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes a soundscape mapping tool, and provides an illustration of its use in the evaluation of an in-car auditory interface. The tool addresses three areas: communicating what people are listening to, showing how soundscapes can be visualized, and demonstrating how the approach can be used by a designer during the evaluation of an auditory display. The strengths and limitations of this approach are discussed and future work identified.
