Audioprofile Surface Viewer

The applet can be viewed here

The Audioprofile Surface Viewer is a Java based applet that allows users to view a three dimensional audioprofile surface (APS) within one of several different browsers (excluding Chrome at present). An APS is a novel way of representing audiometric data; integrating age, frequency, and hearing loss in a 3D surface plot. The APS Viewer allows the user to view different pre-computed APSs for different autosomal dominant (and recessive) non-syndromic hearing loss loci and also view age-specific two dimensional audioprofiles of the selected locus.

To use the APS Viewer applet, you must be using a browser that supports Java applets. Firefox 1.x+, Safari, and Internet Explorer 5.5+ are browsers know to support this applet. To accommodate Java’s security capabilities, you'll be prompted to grant the applet permission to run. Click “accept” in response to the security prompts that appear as the applet loads. By checking "Do not show again" you will only have to go through this authorization process once.

Please also note that because the applet is a dynamic application, it may take several seconds to load.
