With the level of pollution increasing at an alarming state, how can we imagine that the air will remain safe? New industries are being set almost every day anywhere, and there are contributing so much to the air pollution, and we are doing nothing about it.
In fact, we are not even sure about air pollution. If we see smog or haziness outside, only then we blame the pollution otherwise we don’t even realise that the clean, fresh is slowly becoming rare.
To overcome such difficulties, AirVisual has created a 3D Map which will tell us about air pollution.
The map is created by Air visual, a Pekin-based company. This map collects data in the form of interaction of ambient particulate matter (PM2.5) levels and the weather pattern as well from real time.
They collect data from almost 10,000 monitoring stations and crowdsource data for its own monitors. The data which is collected is owed to three different sources; Government data, satellite images, and special captors by the company.
How It Works
When you open the map, different levels of AQI (Air Quality index) are shown which will be indicating different color-coded heat mapping of almost 8000 cities in over 60 different countries.
The map displays the AQI on the scale of 0 to 300+. The higher the score on the level, the worst is the quality of the air in that particular region.
You can click on the map, and the desired location or city will show up. You can zoom in or zoom out for further detailing regarding that region. You can also switch between the weather and the PM2.5 levels.
