According to World Health Organization, the excessive noise seriously harms human health and interferes with people's daily activities at school, at work, at home and during leisure time. It can disturb sleep, cause cardiovascular and psychophysiological effects, reduce performance and provoke annoyance responses and changes in social behaviour". The reduction of noise pollution is therefore a major challenge for society.

The aim of this website is then to propose new tools, based on scientific researches, for the environmental noise assessment. The Noise-Planet project is led by two French research teams, recognized in their field of expertise, the DECIDE Team (Lab-STICC - CNRS UMR 6285) for GISciences and the Joint Research Unit in Environmental Acoustics (UMRAE) for environmental noise research.
Because Noise-Projet deals with Open Science, they are many ways to contribute to the project: contribute to the source code, report issues, propose new translations, write documentation, contribute to the data collection, give us your feedback...
