Abstract [en]

Over the last years, soundscape research has increased strongly and with this also the need for sharing ideas regarding methods of data collection, procedures and evaluation. We present two soundscape studies, conducted in residential areas. The measurements are based on general practice in perception psychology, psychophysics and sensory evaluation. The first study measured overall soundscape quality in order to investigate necessary actions to improve the soundscape. The second study measured if the restoration of a courtyard will meet preset objectives for soundscape improvement. We present useful soundscape metrics and indicators. We discuss our particular research procedures and their implications for soundscape research and practice. We conclude that perception psychology, psychophysics, and sensory evaluation provide the design tools necessary for soundscape improvement.
