NoiseModelling v4.0 User Guide¶
Welcome on the official NoiseModelling v4.0 User Guide.
NoiseModelling is a library capable of producing noise maps. It can be freely used either for research and education, as well as by experts in a professional use.
A general overview of the model (v3.4.5 - September 2020) can be found in this video.

What’s new with the V4.0?¶
Since the release v4.0, NoiseModelling implements the CNOSSOS-EU standard method for the noise emission (road and rail (for France)) and with noise propagation (read “Numerical Model” and “Validation” pages for more information).
On the NoiseModelling latest release page, three packages of NoiseModelling are proposed:
NoiseModelling_4.0.0.zip: cross-platform version, with GUI (Graphic User Interface)
NoiseModelling_4.0.0_install.exe: windows installer, with GUI
NoiseModelling_4.0.0_without_gui.zip: version without GUI. Usefull to run NoiseModelling using command lines (read “Pilot NoiseModelling with scripts”” page for more info)
NoiseModelling was initially developed in a research context, which has led to numerous scientific publications. For more information, have a look to “Scientific production” page. To quote this tool, please use the bibliographic reference below:
