About the Flight Noise Map Dashboard

Both decibel values and flyovers were within ±2 value difference from the sensor measurement of the data points used in the evaluation. The colors used in the visualisation represent a range of Leq values as follows:

< 50 db (quite rural background noise, library)

50-55 db (office average background noise)

55-60 db (conversational speech)

60-65 db (piano practice)

65-70 db (noisy restaurant)

70 > db (vacuum cleaner)

The noise values reported in this dashboard app are based on the measure Leq. The noise value in each position is calculated based on flight information and other factors. The values were evaluated using real sensor information and airport traffic stats and optimised to provide accurate results.

Thanks to OpenSky Network for allowing us to use their data to map the noise around the world. They do a great work in gathering/cleaning the data and make it available per API. Their community spans the whole world.

Thanks to ADSBHUB for providing us with more data for mapping noise. ADSBHUB is a community of people gathering and providing and api for flight locations based ond ADSB signals.

Thanks to Lukas Martinelli and his work on noise mapping using Openstreetmap, we were able to use the mbtiles he published on his repo for rendering land noise (road, rail, ...). Land noise is represented by same colors as flight noise. Bare in mind that the land noise is NOT calculated using real traffic data.
