Noise mapping idea
  • Hey g-rad. I'm looking for a new apartment/house, and one of the unknowns that just never becomes apparent until about 3am the first night you sleep in a new place is noise.

    Right next to train tracks? Yup, you're going to have noise. Three blocks away? You never know...

    How far away from the firehouse or emergency room do you need to live to avoid siren noise?

    So, this is just a fleeting idea: a crowd-sourced noise map wherein users add the noises they hear (and at what time) regularly from their homes.

Howdy, Stranger!
