NoiseCapture: what kind of users ?



NoiseCapture is an application intended above all to a public having a level of technical expertise allowing to carry out acoustic measurements in a certain respect of the rules of art and then to give a sufficiently critical look at the results provided. The profile of the user can be very diverse, but in any case it should have a certain "sensitivity" in the field of noise in the environment: acoustician, technician or engineer (in the broad sense) within a community or a consulting firm, a technical training professional, or any person who has received preliminary training in the use of the application, for example during a NoiseCapture Party.
NoiseCapture can of course be of interest to a wider audience, bearing in mind the need to have a critical look at the results provided by the application.
