At present, air pollutant and noise pollutions belong to the most serious environmental and health problems according to the World Health Organization (WHO) in the European conurbations. To fight them the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union have passed different directives within the last few years which were implemented or still have to be implemented into national legislation in the European states.
The initiation for the development of the environmental management system envVision was given by the EU-Environmental Noise Directive. With this Directive a new quality in noise abatement is claimed: away from event-based analyses and plans up to extensive and repetitive ones.
With that new innovative challenges are put to the DV-technical infrastructure for the noise abatement in particular and the environmental protection in general:
envVision keeps all data bundled that is collected for the study of air quality and noise. Geological base data, technical and conclusion data (e.g. noise-/air pollutant grid, measurements, judgements like person affected analyses). Technical applications such as on noise or the dispersal of air pollutant can be initiated from envVision.
With the envVisions-revision control concept for planning tasks M.O.S.S. provides a new innovative technology approach of data management. The data is administrated in versions to which respective data users are given access. This way planning processes can be carried out in a version of their own with a data stock which is concrete and fixed for this task. Parallel planning processes and variants can independently be managed in parallel versions.
With envVision Services NOISE/AIR profitability and efficiency are documented by consistent multiple use of data acquiring only once and consequentially resulting in synergy effects, e.g. periodical repetition of the mentioned assignments (e.g. noise mapping every 5 years) when using the data for air quality as well as noise abatement analyses. envVision assures traceability of processes, enormous legal certainty and transparency, a high level of automation and especially data reusability. Consequentially a system results with a substantial level on sustainability.
