In Brazil, there is a lack in urban planning on aircraft noise impacted areas. People living around airports are often not aware of land use restrictions that are determined by different levels of government. This study aims to develop a Web-Based Public Participatory GIS. This model can aid both people and authorities to minimize conflicts between airport and population by providing more confident information in real time. Keywords: Aircraft noise, GIS, Urban planning, Public Participation.
