We define four different tasks (orientation, localization, navigation and sonification), which are common in immersive visualization. Immersive visualization takes place in virtual environments, which provide an integrated system of 3D auditory and 3D visual display. The main objective of our research is to find out the best possible ways to use audio in different tasks. In the long run the goal is more efficient utilization of the spatial audio in immersive visualization application areas. Results of our first experiment have proven that navigation is possible using auditory cues.
