There's a basic online viewer here: http://noise.eea.europa.eu/ but the GIS data is available here: http://cdr.eionet.europa.eu/
IIRC, dash/helmet cams are also not allowed here due to privacy, which is crazy. A friend of mine was hit by a car while riding his bike and now has to fight the driver in court to get justice since there were no witnesses. A cam would have made a night/day difference.
First - its not true that you cannot use a dash cam. You just can't ever publish any media from that camera that might be used to identify a person - even in a court of law, when attempting to prove your own innocence.
You can use a dash cam to record your journey - but if you ever show the video to anyone, you must render anyone in that video un-identifiable, and that goes for license plates as well.
Also, a common misconception among Austrians is that you need permission to film someone in public. This is not true - no such permission is required, and you can record anyone in any public space, any time you want.
You're just not allowed to use that recording to identify someone, nor for commercial purposes - without express permission.
Crazy, isn't it? But nobody said Austrian law is sane.
No offense to anyone, I like privacy focused societies but taking it to such an extent that it ends up protecting the wrong doers is the society equivalent of selling your liver to buy a kidney.
You can use it to prove your own actions - i.e. was safely stopped at the green light when you were smashed into by another car.
I'm surprised there isn't more of this already published and well known, such that you can go on Zillow and see such things.
Pure speculation, but perhaps this would only detract from more sales and revenue-generating turnover?
The truth is the grid of Altbau (pre-war) buildings is great to live in, especially if you don't share the flat and can utilise the "back" room as a bedroom. But pretty much most side streets (at least in the West) are super quiet -- thanks to speed bumps, narrow lanes, treeline and wide sidewalks.
EDIT: Also many points are in heavy-industry areas (like Westhafen) so being far away from the street doesn't change much.
If I re-engineered your algorithm correctly, it tries to find the single largest circle within a grid of streets.
This, unfortunately doesn't work well for a river that isn't frequently broken up by bridges.
E.g. the whole area of Treptower Park, Insel der Jugend, Stralau and Rummelsburger Bucht doesn't have a Rueckzugsort next to the water (there is only a big one in Plaenterwald for that whole part of the Spree).
Nice work, though. I'd be interested in a version of this that maximizes walking or biking time without crossing streets!
Is there any information about how these particular circles were generated?
Like for me, I love that now that I live in Munich, I can get around by foot, by bike, by bus, by train, etc. But a lot of Americans really do like that in the US, everything is so spread out you have to drive. Different strokes and all.
Don't forget proximity to vaccines!
On a more serious note, a coal plant (like there are plenty in Germany) will spew 10x more radionuclides in the air than a nuclear plant for the same amount of produced electricity.
So why aren't you avoiding coal plants rather than nuclear power plants again ?
Coal power plants, even with emission regulations, are very dirty as far as radioactive emissions are concerned.
Nobody is denying that or excluding the possibility to add coal plants to such a map. Excuse me for not adding a complete, prioritized list of features to my question. I find it disturbing that some people start insinuating "humorously" that someone is an "anti-vaxxer" because he's considering functionality for people who - for whatever reason - don't like living near nuclear plants. It's this kind of derailing that makes discussions on the Web unbearable sometimes...
Though looking at my area a few of the larger dots are inaccessible industrial areas. Not exactly what you're looking for. Wonder if that could be made more intelligent.
Background: pretty bad case of asthma, car exhausts being one thing that makes things worse.
Berlin is one of the best cities in the whole word. Very friendly and mostly free of neonazis.
There is a great place to dance ABBA songs called Matrix, just under the subway station near Friedrichshein
Is one of my top favourite places to dance in the world, together with the famous Propaganda, or PPG , like the young people call it, in wudaokou, near the forestry university
Saw some similar weird hatred on Reddit recently. Not sure what happened to people in Berlin but just like any other big city there are lovely and shitty parts. You got to spend some time here to know which is which (obviously this may be different for all of us).
Anyone is allowed to be whomever they want to be in Berlin - so there is a mix of things and people quite unparalleled.
I mean the good thing is that unpleasant people like you don't live anywhere near it which makes it awesome again!
> Germans don't like Berlin.
Yeah, that's just nonsense. Not sure what makes you qualified to make such sweeping assertions.
