Mapping Sound and Noise Pollution

La Montre Verte

SenSaris is a company that make 'senspods', mobile applications that can transmit real time geolocation and other data. The company have developed a small Bluetooth wearable senspod to provide cities with a new means of mapping noise and air pollution with Google Maps.

The senspods are equipped with two environmental sensors (to measure ozone and noise) a GPS chip and a Bluetooth chip.

The La Montre Verte (Green Watch) website is a Google Maps mashup that shows some of the data collected by SanSaris sensors at a number of French locations. Using the map it is possible to analyse noise and ozone pollution at various locations and at different times of the day.
