IMMI is well prepared to handle large-scale mapping project Packages and language support such as Strategic Noise Maps and others. Calculation run times depend on a number of factors, the most obvious ones are number of grid points, number of sources and propagation effects. IMMI offers a series of efficiency techniques that are likely to improve calculation times in IMMI is available in any of the three following packages, each of which carries a different price tag and more or less features.

IMMI Standard is a comfortable entry-level into the world of ISO9613 Finally, IMMI features a technology rather than a technique noise mapping. that is especially useful in large-scale projects: semi- automatic segmentation and distributed processing of large-scale noise maps.
