Abstract

This project, completed for the City of Boston's Air Pollution Control Commission, initiated a process for the "farming" of noise data contained in noise impact assessments for new projects and noise complaint investigations. We created a protocol for these data to be submitted electronically, organized in one database, and mapped in Geographical Information Systems. We developed recommendations for conducting noise impact assessments and methods for analyzing the noise map to gain a comprehensive understanding of the noise environment in the city.
