Citizen noise pollution monitoring
In this paper we present a new approach to monitor noise pollution involving citizens and built upon the notions of participatory sensing and citizen science. We enable citizens to measure their personal exposure to noise in their everyday environment by using GPS-equipped mobile phones as noise sensors. The geo-localised measures and user-generated meta-data can be automatically sent and shared online with the public to contribute to the collective noise mapping of cities. Our prototype, called NoiseTube, can be found online1 . Categories and Subject Descriptors H.4 [Information Systems Applications]: Miscellaneous General Terms Management, Measurement, Human Factors, Experimentation. Keywords Noise pollution, citizen science, sustainability, participatory sensing, geo-localisation, tagging, mobile phones.
