London 21 Noise Mapping Project Press Release

Residents in parts of Newham and Greenwich have been taking part in a London 21 initiative which focusses on taking noise readings and descriptions, with experts then putting the experiences and the data into maps making levels of noise mean something to communities. Getting to grips with decibels is difficult - and it is even more difficult to know what a particular level of decibels is until you have measured the levels yourself regularly. The mapping project illustrates the noise - making the experience of noise visually much easier to understand and compare.
