Strategic Noise Maps 2012

Calculation Results / Tabular Evaluations

As required in the “Directive on the Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise”, strategic noise maps graphically represent the noise situation in the following isophone classes:

They form the basis for preparing an overall urban noise reduction plan (in German).

The noise exposure is specified through the following variables:

  • Tabular data about the estimated number of persons living in areas located within the isophone bands according to Fig. 1. Figures should be rounded up or down to the next hundredth place.
  • Tabular data about noise-exposed areas as well as the estimated number of dwellings, schools and hospitals in these areas for the following LDEN values: LDEN > 55 dB(A), LDEN > 65 dB(A), LDEN > 75 dB(A).

The summarized results of the exposure and area statistics for the main federal railway lines for conurbation areas are available here.

In the assessment of schools and hospitals affected, each building of the respective facility was considered. For example, if school complexes consisted of three buildings, all three buildings were evaluated.

Industry and Commerce
