Astronify – application

Last year I watched a lecture on some software called astronify, This is used to scan an image from a telescope and turn different parts of the image in to sound.

So for example, a blue star may be presented at a high frequency, where as a red star may be presented at a lower frequency when played as sound.

The original lecture was about making astronomy accessible to people with sight loss. I wrote more about this in a blog post

Fast forward to 2022 and this technology has been used for further research which is presented in the following paper:-

Evaluating the efficacy of sonification for signal detection in univariate, evenly sampled light curves using astronify
