APMgeo is providing GIS consultancy to Anderson Acoustics, a leading noise specialist group. The work which is focussed on Heathrow Airport has included GIS analysis of noise modelling and soci-economic data using bespoke tools.
Support is being provided in the following areas:
i) Visualisation of noise modelling for on-going airspace trials at the airport which seek to minimise the impacts of noise on the local community.
ii) GIS analysis to identify properties which are most affected by aircraft noise as part of Heathrow’s ‘Quieter Homes Initiative’, a scheme which offers sound-proofing measures to insulate homes against aircraft noise.
iii) Spatial analysis informing Anderson Acoustics of potential noise impacts of future options for growth at Heathrow Airport.
