END noise mapping – the sustainable solution of the german federal railway authority, review to an outstanding

0
The Federal Railway Authority of Germany was tendering 2006 a sustainable noise mapping system to fulfil the needs of the END (European Noise Directive). The aim of the project was to develop a system which contains all required model data and results for the first level of the EU noise mapping. In addition the system should be an integrated software solution to explore the model data. It should give public access to the results, include a set of optimized tools to continue the work for the next level of detail and also be a data supplier for local authorities.

The major challenges of this project were: The integration and homogenization of the fundamental data from each individual federal state and different other data suppliers to build an area-wide data model that is consistent and sustainable. Merging the different software products GIS software, database software and noise calculation software to get a completely homogenous software application and transferring the know-how from the model data preparation into this new software application.

The goal was reached in 2008: The results are published via the internet. Local authorities can request base date from the system for their action plans.
