Noise Risk Dashboard

Under certain environmental conditions such as thermal inversions and light wind speeds, noise can propagate for long distances. Noise-generating activities have the potential to cause noise pollution under these conditions.

The Kite Noise Dashboard provides an hourly forecast of conditions 7 days ahead of noise propagating toward your sensitive receptors. 

Dashboard features

  • Cards showing Daily summary and colour-identified risk level

  • Cards are displayed for today, the last 6 days and the next 6 days

  • Note that a “Day” is taken from 6 am to 6 am. For example, Today is from 6 am today until 6 am tomorrow. This is to correspond to most shift operations. If your shift start times are different you can request a customised dashboard.

  • Detailed hourly data can be seen as a Table (select Table tab) or Graph (select Graph tab). The tabs are located above the table/graph on the left-hand side.

  • If you have your weather station set up to send data to Kite this is shown in the table in bold and is presented on the graph as a solid line.

  • You can extend the data viewed on the Graph by clinking on the All button, located in the top left-hand side of the graph window.
