MINI: Mashup for Identifying Noisy Infrastructure

MINI: Mashup for Identifying Noisy Infrastructure

This video was recorded at 10th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC), Montpellier 2013. A large number of people are exposed to noise pollution every day, which can cause severe illnesses. In this case, noise maps as a visual representation of the noise level in urban areas can help to assess noise pollution. Current noise maps are either based on simulations or small amounts of measurements, thus, they are not representative or useful. With our mashup MINI, we show how vast amounts of user-generated noise data and external knowledge about urban areas like information about surrounding buildings or streets, and weather data can be used for creating noise pollution maps for different cities. The mashup can be accessed here:
