), in partnership with the World Resources Institute (WRI) and Development Seed, is holding a campaign to help address the existing air quality gap across the world. While there are many places where air quality data aren't yet measured on the ground, there are already thousands of government stations sharing air quality data across the world on disparate sites. To maximize the potential of the world's air quality data to impact policy, science and the public, these data need to be aggregated and made openly available in a simple form.
) has been working to do just this. To date, we have relied on our community to both identify and write open-source adapters to ingest into our open-source platform. So far, we have 5,629 ground monitoring air quality stations from 48 countries through our community's awesome efforts. See our current data coverage here: https://openaq.org/#/map
With the help of WRI and Development Seed, we are seeking to identify and add in as many more government-level air quality data sources as possible this summer.
Do you know of a government-level data source to could add in? Do you know of an air quality agency we should connect with? Help us #FixtheAQGap by filling out the form below.
