abstract These data were created by Ben Hinze as part of his work to create a road, rail and aircraft noise model for Australia. For roads, inputs based from mobile device probe counts include traffic volumes, speeds and HGV% for the day, evening and night time periods for all roads including local access streets. Noise barriers as identified by the NSW Department of Roads and Maritime Services also feature. Buildings were sourced from PSMA Australia (release date May 2019), with all features overlaid on to a terrain developed from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. | | Noise levels in the form of an LAeq were calculated using the German standard RLS90 for the day (7am to 7pm), evening (7pm to 11pm) and night (11pm to 7am) time periods. | | At this stage, no verification has been made with this dataset and the German standard. This process is currently underway. | | Then a noise level was calculated for each facade of each storey for each building for the road lines. These noise levels are based on the noise levels around each building facade and provide not only the maximum noise level at each building, but also an average and minimum noise levels around each building, acknowledging not everyone lives in the loudest room of each house. | | These data also include the height and number of floors in the buildings.
