Data Input

A model can be produced by input via keybord, with digitizer from paper plans or from digital data using one of the many interfaces CadnaA offers. Even the standard program in the smallest version can more then 15 different data formats. With CadnaA the environment as far it is relevant for noise generation and propagation is modelled on a computer.

This top view of a power plant is produced by drawing the outline of buildings, the road axis, the center of cylinders and the point sources (see below). These geometric informations can also be entered from a paper plan using a digitizer. The heights and all other data are entered by keybord. All these data can also be imported from other applications or databases.


The model produced is part of a virtual world - it can be regarded at screen from all sides, rotated, you can run through and fly over it. And - a speciality of CadnaA - even in this 3D-presentation you can click on objects and modify the data in the edit window.

CadnaA has even in the standard version many interfaces and these enable the user to import data from CAD- files, GIS-systems, databases and other applications. It is possible to import coordinates of points and all attribute values of objects with the powerful ODBC-interface of CadnaA. These data can be administered and actualised in spreadsheets like MS-Excel or in databases like MS-Access or Oracle. This makes it possible e.g. to actualise the data that are organised by the road construction agencies by importing them from time to time from their data system.

These interfaces are continuously and without any additional cost for the user supplemented and adapted to the technical state of the art.
