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. MacVeigh, R. & Jacobson, R. D.

Many Thanks, Nick. -- Nick Bearman University of Leicester nb92@xxxxxxxx nick.bearman@xxxxxxxx
