Languages of publication
Human activity is main source of all environmental pollutions. Noise is common environmental issuesthat cannot be generated without geospatial location. It has great impact on mankind such as physical disturbance, physiological disturbance and affects human health. The aim of this research work is to identify the geospatial noise level and mapping noise vulnerability in some part of Ibadan North East Local Government Area. DSLM and GPS are used for survey method in which sixteen different location points were selected for noise vulnerability. The Mathematical Model is used to calculate Equivalent continuous sound level for morning, afternoon and evening (Lm_a_e), mean noise level for the morning, afternoon, evening and Daily Average of Noise values were generated. World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation standard was used as a standard in this research because Nigeria Noise pollution bill is still under consideration in the National Assembly. ArcGIS software was used for analysis and noise zones were carved out based on WHO yardsticks. Noise vulnerability mapping generated shown that land uses within the study area were experiencing very higher noise levels which are risky to the environment and society. Environmental agency and Government should set standard values for the noise barriers by passing the noise bill in the National Assembly assiduously and soonest.
