The Noise Pollution Map - With Real Noise
This London Noise Pollution Map has utilized an innovative method for representing traffic noise data in the English capital. It actually uses the volume of a background audio recording to represent the volume of noise pollution on London roads.
The map does include a conventional heat map level to show average road and rail noises between 7 am and 11 pm. However if you mouse-over a location of the map the volume of a background audio recording rises or falls to show the levels of noise pollution at the selected position. An inset noise oscilloscope also shows the levels of noise pollution at the chosen location.
