Urbis model: Tool for local environmental studies
Urbis is a GIS tool developed by TNO which makes it possible to create detailed area wide maps of noise and air pollution in municipalities. This is done on the basis of data on traffic, activities, emissions or immissions. Furthermore, Urbis can be used to study the effects of exposure, such as nuisance and sleep disruption. Urbis is a software tool compatible with ArcView. It can be used by municipalities themselves, for example in combination with a traffic model. The CAR model was integrated in Urbis and further developed.
