InfluencAir - Citizens measuring air quality

  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.

  4. 4. Citizen-driven PM measurements across Europe ● Instructions to install self-built PM sensors ● Continuous updated PM map from transmitted data luftdaten.info
  5. 5. 3844 sensors worldwide 2306 in Europe maps.luftdaten.info Citizen-driven PM measurements across Europe
  6. 6. Citizen-driven PM measurements in Belgium Citizens groups: ● Dustcube (Antwerp) ● Leuvenair ● Ecofablab Brugge ● InfluencAir 110 sensors in Belgium

  17. 17. 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.
