Sound Maps

“Our sense of hearing, which has until recently been underappreciated as a means of representing data, can be used to expand the representational repertoire of cartographic design….Sound, in other words, provides us with more choices for representing data and phenomena and thus more ways in which to explore and understand the complex physical and human worlds we inhabit.”
