Visualizing Noise Levels in Berlin

by Michael McLaughlin
Berlin noise levels

German newspaper Berliner Morgenpost has created an interactive map depicting the levels of ambient noise that residential buildings and sensitive buildings, such as hospitals and schools, experience throughout Berlin. The map uses data from Berlin’s Senate Department for the Environment, Transport, and Climate Protection, which calculates residential noise levels every five years to influence urban planning and help determine whether citizens can receive subsidies for soundproof windows. The map shows that many residential buildings experience noise levels of over 65 decibels, which are considered to be hazardous.

Take a look.
