The app gives information about the status of the environment in the cities, by exploiting historical and real time spatio-temporal pollution data, along with some air quality forecasts.
Through the use of an interactive map and a trip planner, a user can access the following main features of the app for planning ecological trips:
1) Plan a trip between two locations, choose the transportation mean, and inspect the ecological footprint of the trip;
2) Allow the user to select the most polluted area that the trip has to avoid to cross, in order to force the trip planner to avoid and prevent over-pollution;
3) Using air quality forecasts, visualize the pollution condition at the time of departure (within 72 hours), in order to stimulate the user to choose a more environmentally friendly departure time.
