Abstract:


The overwhelming number of radio stations, both online and
over the air, makes the choice of an appropriate program
difficult. By profiling the program content of radio stations
using Self-OrganizingMaps we provide a reflection of a station’s
program type and give potential listeners a visual clue
for selecting radio stations. Profiles of current broadcasts
indicate which program type a station is currently playing.
By creating radio station maps it is possible to directly pick
a specific program type instead of having to search for a
suitable radio station.
