About Us

Roger Zimmerman, P.Eng, PMP
Founder dB Foresight Corporation

I created dB Foresight to fill what I saw as a gap in the industry. I wanted a software tool that was simple to learn, and fast and easy to use. I wanted it to be able to consider all the standard noise attenuation effects, including the effects of the natural contours of the land. To make it easy to import the elevation data, I developed Elevation Mapper. I wanted it to export the plots into KML files, so they could be easily viewed in Google Earth(TM). I think we have accomplished all that and more.  I am getting feedback from users that dB Foresight’s interface is better than the most expensive products on the market. Customers are relieved at the short learning curve to get started, and the ease of having the results plotted onto a map.

Vision, Goals and Plans

dB Foresight was created to fill a need to be able to do noise impact assessments considering all ISO-9613 requirments, and considering the natural barrier attenuation effects from the elevation contours. dB Foresight complies with ISO-9613 standards and accepts elevation data to predict noise levels based on natural barriers from the elevation contours, along with man-made barriers, and all considerations required from the ISO-9613 standard.

We hope customers will see this product as very simple to get started and user friendly, and produce great results for input to their noise impact assessments. We hope customers will appreciate the flexibility in being able to configure the appearance of the contour plot files created.

We will continuously improve this product, and appreciate any customer feedback. Let us know how we can improve to meet your needs. We’d like this product to be come the new standard for noise impact assessments.
