The application of hi-end technologies in multimedia platforms provides the dynamic setting of the parameters for the reproduction of audiovisual stimulus from natural environments (virtualization through real-time interaction). Additionally, the integration of cartographic products that describe quantitative and qualitative spatial properties expands multimedia’s capabilities for representations with geographical reference. The proposed interface combines data that are used for the mapping of a sonic environment, as well as sonic elements derived from field recordings and photographic material, in order to reconstruct in-vitro the soundscape of a protected area around Lake Antinioti, at northern Corfu, Greece.
