Methodology checklist

A format has been developed on how to collect available input data for noise mapping. For the production of noise maps and for the preparation of basic data for noise maps (e.g.: population distribution, terrain shape, buildings shape, traffic type,..) this format can be used.

Your experience is important for the development of this format! Please fill in the third document so your experience will help us to optimize the form contents.

The format was developed by Work package 1 of Imagine and is intended to be adapted as a result of new information from the users.

1) A short technical report, introducing the survey:

2) the survey itself:

3) an empty questionnaire frame, for people willing to contribute themselves to the survey:
