Scottish Noise Mapping

Free Mapping Services

Scottish Noise Mapping The Scottish Government has produced these noise maps in response to the European Parliament and Council Directive for Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise 2002/49/EC, more commonly referred to as the Environmental Noise Directive (END). This directive deals with noise from road, rail, and air traffic, and from industry. It focuses on the impact of such noise on individuals, complementing existing EU legislation, which sets standards for noise emissions from specific sources.

The three main objectives of the Directive are as follows.

* To determine the noise exposure of the population through noise mapping.
* To make information available on environmental noise to the public.
* To establish Action Plans based on the mapping results, to reduce levels where necessary, and to preserve environmental noise quality where it is good.

The interactive viewer contains maps that show calculated levels of road, rail, aircraft and industrial noise traffic noise across the Glasgow and Edinburgh agglomerations and the main transportation road and rail links. The area to be viewed can be chosen by Post Code.
