A Soundscape of Istanbul

The city of Istanbul now has an online map of its soundscapes. If you’re looking at doing online soundscape design this one is quite elegant. Click on a dot (they’re color-coded by sound type) and you’ll get a popup player with the sound and an image from the area. Two issues: for me, the sounds loop, which can get irritating. Also, you can zoom in on the map of Istanbul but the dots denoting soundscapes are pretty small as you zoom. Still, a well-done soundscape, apparently still in development.
