The traditional method of sound surveying is to use trained professionals to go to a specific location to measure and assess a site using dedicated and expensive equipment. This project aims to enfranchise the public by providing them with the opportunity to play an active role in evaluating a soundscape by encouraging people to use their smart phones to record sound clips documenting their community soundscapes. These are then uploaded to a virtual map along with a set of answers to questions about their selectionAll you need to do is capture and tell Charlie about the sounds around you with our free mobile phone and pc software. Participation is easy and fun and will help our research team discover ways to improve the design of our everyday environments. You can watch this video for more explanation.
