Our planet is filled with noisy cities and tranquil countrysides. While suffering from severe tinnitus (constant ringing of the ears) for 4 months I embarked on developing a concept to map our planet’s sound. Decibel is the result.
The concept is simple: users from all over the world download the free app and participate in a 5 to 10 second geolocated activity. Their reward? Their sample result added to the World Aural Map. This World Aural Map cumulative data is updated and averaged in real time.
