The Idea
Once entered or edited, data are valuable resources. However, the exchange and further use of important data material is often difcult because it comes in different formats (DBF, DXF, ASCII, etc.). For that reason, valuable resources remain unused or must be re-edited or acquired. ArcGIS is a data interface which provides a capable tool for exchanging georeferenced data between different programs. This does not pose any problem to IMMI users! With ArcGIS you can, for example, edit and process noise projects to create projects involving air pollutant modeling, land use planning, register of relics or vice versa. The data interface also provides extensive savings potentials if available geodata (geometry and alphanumerical data) can be used. The interface is bidirectional, so that all calculation results can also be exported from IMMI to ArcGIS: Noise maps as point layers, isolines (.t; .ascci; .shp) Faade levels and reception point calculation as point layers (.shp) Export of georeferenced bitmaps

The Solution
ArcGIS, our data interface
Irrespective of your particular requirements, this powerful interface allows you to apply all types of data from ArcGIS: From simple geometry (x-, y-, z-coordinates) to the application of numerous attributes (ADT, velocity, inhabitants, etc.).

YOUR tool for noise mapping

ArcGIS contains data which is organized in topics and corresponds to the element types in IMMI. For example, the geometry data (x, y, z) saved in SHAPE les (*.SHP) is applied to the respective IMMI, while dBase les (*.DBF) contain the associated attributes, and geometry and alphanumerical data is linked via index les (*.SHX).

Transparent and optimized calculation of noise and air pollutants according to legal regulations with IMMI, the leading software for noise and air pollutant mapping in Europe Management and linking of calculation results Creation and management of planning variants as well as their comparison and evaluation Cartographic representation of isolines and grid maps Statistic evaluation of the exposure analysis in relation to persons, buildings and areas Preparation of the action plan Provision of data to inform the public about the internet services of the ArcGIS family

The Method
Geometry data is applied automatically provided units and coordinate systems are standardized. Alphanumerical data is allocated to the corresponding IMMI element types in groups. A further tool facilitating data application is the comfortable editing function (denition of additional lter properties). When exporting from IMMI, noise grids can be output in various formats (ASCII, FLT, SHP, etc.). Georeferenced background images are tted automatically. The user can consult a detailed manual for further information on the import and export of data.
