Visualization Equivalence for Multisensory Perception: Learning from the Visual
May/June 2004 (vol. 6 no. 3)
pp. 61-65
Jonathan C. Roberts, University of Kent
In our information-rich world, computers generate so much data that it comprehending and understanding it in its raw form is difficult. Visual representations are imperative if we are to understand even a small part of it. In addition?or as an alternative to visual mappings?we could map information into nonvisual forms, any form that stimulates any of our senses: from auditory, haptic, olfactory, and gustatory to vestibular.
Index Terms:
nonvisual, haptic, modality, nonsighted, multiperceptual
