We present in this paper the analysis of mobility in the provinces of Salento, in the modal split and their reasons for moving. We used data on commuting (OD matrix municipal disaggregated) recognized by ‘ISTAT in the 2011 census and published in December 2014. The results of the analysis are represented by thematic maps showing estimated levels of air and noise pollution on each municipal areas. The analysis software is designed for automatic search as a decision support system for the intervention policies for the smooth flow of traffic and noise and air pollution.
