InfluencAir - citizens measuring air quality In Brussels

  1. 1. InfluencAir Citizens measuring air quality Project by #InfluencAir http://influencair.be/
  2. 2. We want to raise awareness about air quality in Brussels by measuring and mapping local pollution levels (PM 2.5 & PM 10). We aim to build a comprehensive sensor network covering the whole Brussels region.
  3. 3. Why InfluencAir? * Raise more awareness about air quality and its health effects. * Set an example of real-time open data which anyone can freely access, use, modify, and share for any purpose. * Increase the amount of local measurements, which are complementary to the data from official government stations. * Demonstrate the power of citizens working together. * Bridge the gap between science and a wider audience.
  4. 4. Citizen-driven fine dust measurements across Europe Across Europe several citizen science projects are going on. Luftdaten.info, initiated by OK Lab Stuttgart, is the biggest one with 3378 active sensors in 26 EU countries, producing 4 Mio. data pairs a day. http://deutschland.maps.luftdaten.info/
  5. 5. Citizen-driven fine dust measurements in Belgium Inspired by the work of Luftdaten.info, InfluencAir as well as Leuvenair in Leuven launched similar initiatives. Currently, there are 61 sensors up and running in Belgium.
