    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 1 (2016), Issue 2, pg(s) 48-50

    Noise pollution modelling can be used to provide information about growing noise pollution from the urban traffic. Various methods have been developed that aim at minimizing the noise pollution and improving the environment. Geographic Information System (GIS) can be adapted to gather, analyse and present noise information. The results in this paper demonstrated that most of regions surrounding the main streets are suffering from the noise pollution. As a main contribution of this paper, the first this-kind of study for the city of Skopje, practicing GIS capabilities for presenting noise information, we have produced a general picture of the traffic-induced noise pollution on annual level. The assessment showed that the used method in visualization can provide reliable information about noise pollution in any city or urban region. In this paper, we were focused, as a case study, for the city of Skopje.
