Abstract : ROUTEMAP 2.0 is a PC-based computer program that calculates the noise levels under Military Training Routes (MTRs). The calculations are based on a United States Air Force (USAF) data of measured aircraft noise levels called ROUTEFILE. The program calculates Ldn and Ldnmr noise metrics. The Ldnmr noise metric was developed specifically to assess the impact of noise generated aircraft flying on a MTR. The metric is based on human response studies examining the annoyance elicited by aircraft overflights. The program permits the user to define the MTR and aircraft flight parameters, calculate the noise levels, and generate plots and tables. The plots and tables can be used for Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) and Environmental Assessments (EAs) of MTRs. This user's manual contains the necessary information to install and operate ROUTEMAP 2.0.
