Isleworth Noise Mapping Project
Prove how loud the planes or your neighbours are
HACAN is working with University College London on a noise mapping project. Isleworth has been chosen as one of the pilot areas for the project due to its proximity to the Heathrow flight paths.
The aim of the project is to enable the local community to do something about the problem of noise pollution for themselves, by collecting their own noise readings. Recordings will be made through new technology which has been developed for smart phones that will allow easy measuring of noise levels which immediately place the data on an online map and can be shared by all.
Over a period of 6 weeks HACAN are encouraging local residents to record their personal exposure to noise by using the phone application to create a collective local map of Isleworth (see http://tinyurl.com/bw6xr9h). The idea is to enable local residents to demonstrate the levels of noise they are actually exposed to be based on their own data collection.
To be involved in the project or to find out more information you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the next meeting which will be at The Red Lion Pub, Linkfield Road , Isleworth , TW7 6QJ on Tuesday 22nd May at 7.30pm
You don’t need to own a smart phone to be involved!
Widenoise is a free smartphone application that you can run on your Android or iPhone which can send sound level data to the Isleworth noise map.
