Noise mapping is an emerging technology of urban noise management, which has been developed first and widely applied in the European Union (EU). Researches on noise mapping in China have been gradually developed today. Hangzhou has become the leading city in China which has tried to use the noise map to conduct urban noise management. Noise map of two administrative areas, based on the local noise prediction models, have been drawn in Hangzhou environmental noise management platform. The noise map can be 2D and 3D displayed on the platform and can be updated dynamically by using multi-source monitored data and parallel computing technology. Meanwhile, the statistical analysis of evaluation results, like overproof buildings, impacted population can be provided. Based on noise map, the main urban noise sources, including traffic noise and construction noise can be monitored, evaluated, compared, and finally improved in the platform. The noise map makes it more scientifically and efficiently for environmental noise pollution management in Hangzhou.
