How loud is your location?
World Health Organization (WHO) identified environmental noise as the second-largest environmental health risk in Western Europe. Outside noise entering the home can have a serious impact on health and well-being. Whether you’ve got noisy neighbours or live near a busy area, noise pollution can increase stress and negatively affect your overall quality of life.
Noise levels impact perceived value of a neighbourhood, potentially ‘down-valuing’ housing assets. As well as adverse effects on health and productivity. Soundscape plays an important role in evaluating the quality of the environment. It is the life of a space that one experiences by listening.
Our Urban soundscape map can help you to make an informed decision about the potentially hazardous effects of noise on your hearing and well-being by potential tranquil spaces around your location
If your current or future home is located in a possible busy area it’s not necessarily mean there is a noise problem in the property; the only way to find out whether it is above or below the accepted noise level is to carry out a noise measurement.
The map informs you of the proximity to tranquil spaces to allowing you to make informed decisions.
Raise awareness on flood risk as it’s not currently mandatory for a survey to show the risks.
Compare flood risk levels in dwellings with Environmental Quality information to allow buyers to make informed decisions.
Assist stakeholders to reduce risks in developing their infrastructure strategies further based on validated data.
How do we do it?
Collecting the Right Data
We are connected to receive up-to-date data directly from the national flood warning agencies.
Making Data Ready for Use
Data collected and sent to a data server within a cloud system that processes the information and provides conclusions through our experts.
Flood Risk Map
We map the data and make it easier to read, providing other related information that allow people to compare and see patterns and main affected areas.
