Noise Map – A Great Idea Terribly Done

Noise Map

If I told you there’s a site where you can find out where to get a bit of peace and quiet in London, you might think “What a nice idea”. And it is.

I was dead excited when I read about Noisemapping.org. A government department, DEFRA, have put together the site (granted it’s a few years old, but I’d not seen it till just now). You can enter a postcode or streetname and see where the noise hotspots / coolspots are. So far so good, still excited…

But then you get there. The search is bad. The navigation is bad. The visualisation is bad.

Such a shame. Would be a really nice thing to do with Google Maps. Anyone work with/for a brand that should be sponsoring peace and quiet in London?
