MAUS-plot (2)

Illustration: An audio image from a road with traffic (the blue horizontal line) representing how it would sound to a person standing in the centre of the picture (the blue ring). The black images are buildings, while grey represents asphalt and the green areas vegetation. The red lines represent sound paths that indicate the directions that the sound follows from the road to the listener. The diagram also shows lines indicating where sound is reflected and refracted due to the presence of adjacent buildings.
