With air pollution being the number one environmental concern of citizens and one of the most significant factors posing threat to their health, hackAIR provides reliable information on the current and forecast air quality levels, based on official and model data, and observations from users.
Beyond air pollution, extreme heat events and wildfires are some of the most important environmental factors that affect wellbeing. hackAIR has been recently upgraded to include information about the current and forecast thermal comfort conditions and about the probability of forest fires based on model data. Now you can have a more complete overview of the local environmental conditions that help you make informed decisions to protect yourself.
hackAIR offers personalized recommendations to registered users on how they can safeguard themselves from adverse environmental conditions.
The app is location-based and real-time, offering a map-based interface to the data available. hackAIR offers several ways for you to contribute your own observations:
1. You can state how you feel the current air quality and outdoor temperature at your location and help other users understand the current conditions
3. hackAIR provides instructions on how you can easily build mini air quality monitoring devices and see their measurements in the app
4. Experienced users can submit and access data using an online interface (API).
