A soundmap is a form of locative media[1] [2] that links a place and its sonic representations. It is an example of the personalized map content described alternately as web mapping and neogeography. Soundmaps convey the soundscape of a place, often by organizing multiple soundmarks [3] or "community sound[s] which is unique, or possesses qualities which make it specially regarded or noticed by the people in that community" in a web-based map.

Our sense of hearing, which has until recently been underappreciated as a means of representing data, can be used to expand the representational repertoire of cartographic design....Sound, in other words, provides us with more choices for representing data and phenomena and thus more ways in which to explore and understand the complex physical and human worlds we inhabit.
