A new book entitled ‘Noise Mapping in the EU: Models and Procedures’ has been published, containing a chapter written by Brüel & Kjær’s Application Specialist Douglas Manvell.

It shows how to integrate data with geographical information systems, improve accuracy in model and prediction software - and assess different methods and descriptors for evaluating annoyance and noise exposure.

The chapter written by Douglas Manvell - called ‘Maps and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Noise Mapping’ - gives an overview of the state-of-the-art and offers advice, and also contains examples of solutions and components provided by Brüel & Kjær to our customers.

The book provides a comprehensive reference guide for students, researchers, acoustics consultants, and environmental agencies. It features 18 chapters in total, all written by European experts.

Strategic noise maps are now required in the European Union for all population centers of more than 250,000 inhabitants, as well as for major roads, railways, and airports, and are becoming required for urban areas with over 100,000 people.

The book can be purchased online from Amazon and other retailers.
