Geodan’s 3D data model offers massive time savings for environmental services, authorities, and consultants. Until recently, making noise levels transparent was still manual work, making it a time-consuming task. An important one, nonetheless, because noise pollution is a very common problem in society. The 3D data from the sound model match the data from the national Basic Registry of Addresses and Buildings (BAG), Basic Registry of Large-scale Topography (BGT) and Current Height Database The Netherlands (AHN).
Geomilieu set to expand with a sound data model
This summer, the Geomilieu tool will be expanded with a 3D data model in the field of sound. The model will be made available nationwide and has been made suitable specially for integration into the standard sound modeling software. Geodan and DGMR bundled their years of experience in the field of GIS and sound software for the realization of the model.
Mapping out noise pollution is important. We keep living closer to each other and houses are being built closer to roads and railways. The government is obliged to take sound-attenuating measures when and where standards are exceeded, such as installing sound barriers next to roads or providing sound insulation for houses.
