Description (eng)

The metaphor of auscultating with a stethoscope can be an inspiration to combine visualization and sonification for exploratory data analysis. This paper presents SoniScope, a multimodal approach and its prototypical implementation based on this metaphor. It combines a scatterplot with an interactive parameter mapping sonification, thereby conveying additional information about items that were selected with a visual lens. SoniScope explores several design options for the shape of its lens and the sorting of the selected items for subsequent sonification. Furthermore, the open-source prototype serves as a blueprint framework for how to combine D3.js visualization and SuperCollider sonification in the Jupyter notebook environment. The collection bundles supplement materials and research data for the conference paper published at the Eurographics Conference on Visualization. Conference Paper, EuroVisShort2022:
