Noise by road-, rail-, air traffic and activities by industry

In this map the noise disturbance of all relevant sources are cumulated. The map shows that noise nuisance is a typical urban environmental problem. Most of the disturbance by noise can be found in the Western part of the Netherlands. In this part most of the population and economical activities are concentrated. Noise within the cities is not included in this image, as is the impact of low flying aircraft routes. By way of example, detailed maps for the city of Leiden and for Amsterdam are available. For the other cities in italics more coarse detail is available.
