FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOSTON, MA – October 1, 2017 Erica Walker, recent graduate from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and founder of Noise and the City, announces the launch of NoiseScore, a free smart-phone application designed to record the objective and subjective responses to community noise and map user response in real-time.
NoiseScore is Noise and the City’s newest addition to our growing community resource toolbox. The NoiseScore smartphone application has been generously sponsored by The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and was developed to allow residents from all over the globe to document and visualize their ever-changing environmental soundscape. With this free app, you can:
- Objectively describe your daily soundscape by recording its sound levels
- Visually document your daily sound scape by taking either a photo or video
- Subjectively describe your daily soundscape by answering a brief survey
- Track your responses via our live heat maps (noisescore.com) , which visualizes your responses and the responses of all other users by filters including time, location, and types of noise sources.
NoiseScore can be downloaded at iTunes and Google Play
