Noise maps are used to assess and monitor the influence of the noise effects. Thus, the number of citizens who are annoyed can be determined. Noise mapscan be helpful in the planning and decision making processesforreducing the noisepollution. In this paper, the noise map for parts of the city Stip, as a small urban area in the centre of the East Macedonia is delivered as a visual information of the acoustic behaviour. For this purpose, the SoundPLAN software is used. Thesmall and medium sized agglomerations (up to 100,000 inhabitants) as well as model generation and data administration are performed by the SoundPLAN as single software. It is of great importance that noise modelling software is flexible in the administration of multiple noise scenarios and to be able quickly and reliably to turn these models into noise maps. Software’s like SoundPLAN use advanced filtering algorithms so the model can be reduced with a user defined tolerance. The SoundPLAN software offers many tools for data preparation, consistency checks and reports documentation. Many of the tools go well beyond what could be expected in an acoustical simulation program.
