This paper deals with the working out of a method suitable to locate the critical areas from an acoustic point of view inside the pertinence zones of the roads. We have applied our method to about one thousand kilometres of major roads managed by ANAS in Lombardia. The procedure is based on the coupling of a Geographic Information System (GIS) with an acoustics simulation model. In order to characterize the noise sources in the prediction software, it has been necessary to estimate in every significant section of the streets the day and night average fluxes of vehicles, the vehicle typology and their average velocity. This study started from a statistical analysis of the experimental data obtained by sound measurements and by counting the vehicle fluxes. As a result, we have obtained on a GIS the acoustics map of the whole Lombardia road network with information on where the noise limits classes are exceeded.
