An sonic site analysis was performed on a swatch of land extending from the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts into False Creek. Visual and audio recordings were made on site, and prevalent sound sources were represented as a layer of acoustic contours overlaid on plan and section drawings. The resulting map is thick with overlapping sonic zones which can be interpreted based on our understanding of human sound perception.
