European Network for Redistributing Geospatial Information to user Communities
Dr. Stefano Nativi, from the National Research Council of Italy, Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research, the Project Coordinator of the ENERGIC OD project, published an article “European Network for Redistributing Geospatial Information to user Communities” at the UK platform named Adjacent Government (http://www.adjacentgovernment.co.uk) for policy makers, experts, and front-line figures to highlight new projects, discuss and debate current challenges and communicate instances of best practice.
The present paper proposes an ideal Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) dedicated to noise monitoring based on volunteers measurements. Called OnoM@P, it takes advantage of the geospatial standards and open source tools to build an integrated platform to manage the whole knowledge about a territory and to observe its dynamics. It intends also to diffuse good practices to organize, collect, represent and process geospatial data in field of acoustic researches. OnoM@p falls within the framework of the Environmental Noise Directive (END) 2002/49/CE. The system relies on the NoiseCapture Android application developed for allowing each citizen to estimate its own noise exposure with its smartphone.
