NoiseCapture is a free and open-source Android application that allows users to measure and share the noise environnement. Each noise measure is combined with its GPS track so that the result can be displayed in a interactive maps within the application, but also on this page.
NoiseCapture can be used by anyone with experience in the field of noise, allowing to carry out acoustic measurements in a certain respect of the rules of art and then to observe a sufficiently critical look at the results provided.
