The problem of noise pollution in Baghdad, the capital city of Iraq, is getting worse every day as a result of the increased volume of traffic. This presents a considerable risk, particularly on the main roads that connect densely populated neighborhoods such as the Al-Sadr City district with the central neighborhoods of the capital. In order to inform decision-makers in urban development and environmental policy about the high values of noise pollution that require remediation and regulation, noise maps are produced. However, two fundamental problems are generally faced in creating a more reliable noise map in the shortest possible time: the excessive time requirements for measuring noise and determining the method of map creation. Therefore, the role of geographic information system (GIS) software in producing noise maps is evident due to the difficulty of increasing the spatial density of measurements and integrating them with spatial information. Hence, an appropriate interpolation method is required. In this article, Moran’s I index was calculated to assess the spatial autocorrelation of measured traffic noise points. A comparison was made between the Smart Map Plugin ordinary kriging (OK) and the inverse distance weighting (IDW) deterministic interpolation method to determine the best method for producing noise maps for the main entrance and exit roads of Al-Sadr City. The noise values were modeled using the best-performing method. Furthermore, the predictive raster data are displayed in the spatial context as a starting point and reference for identifying and understanding the levels of traffic noise in the selected study area. The locations of selected points for measuring traffic noise values were determined in an organized and homogeneous manner, where noise points for the main entrance and exit roads were opposite each other, and the distance between consecutive noise points on each road was 100 m. Traffic noise measurements were carried out at each selected point using the SVAN977 sound and vibration analyzer. At each measurement point, three noise values (LAeq, Max, Min) were obtained during the three peak times, 7–9 AM, 12–2 PM, and 4–6 PM. QGIS software was used to compare the two interpolation methods, with its strength lying in the use of plugins that facilitate spatial analysis, processing tools, and algorithms. The Smart Map Plugin provided facilities to choose the appropriate semi-variogram in the OK interpolation method. The root mean square error was used to compare the two interpolation methods in order to determine the most suitable method for producing traffic noise maps in the study area. The results indicated that the Smart Map Plugin using OK outperformed the IDW method, as spatial distribution pattern and homogeneity affect the accuracy of interpolation. Moreover, based on the analysis of the three noise attributes (LAeq, Max, Min), the performance of the Smart Map Plugin (OK) was found to be better than IDW when the Moran’s I value was high.
