Using sound with a GIS

Hello to everyone on the list,
I'm interested in how sound (in conjunction with vision) can be used to 
show data in a GIS (Geographical Information System). A GIS is basically a 
computer based map, which allows users to view, edit and analysis 
geographical data. Google Earth is an example of a very basic GIS, which 
just allows you to view data. (Apologies if I'm preaching to the 
converted, but I wanted to make sure people know what I'm talking about!)
Specifically I'm looking for references which look at this use of sound. I 
have some already (see below) and would be very grateful if people could 
post any others they may have.
