How can Luftdaten.info help me?
The site offers an interactive map that renders fine dust visible. Through sensors, this map is updated at regular intervals and can be viewed here.
You can download the raw data here and start to analyze it with a GIS tool or do some statistical analysis.
How can I use Luftdaten.info, and what are its benefits?
As already mentioned, you can help with this project by building your own sensor and contributing more data. You may either participate in their local workshop held in Stuttgart, Germany or you can just go to their website where you will find instructions on how to build your own sensor, which you can then install at your house wall or any other desired location.
To support OK Lab to place more sensors worldwide you can also leave a donation here.
