air quality sensing technologies

which type of sensors or methodes are used to obtain air quality measurements. “Direct” methods refer to devoted sensing devices bought and used by the costumer, “indirect” methods to data collection methods from offial air quality networks

air quality data from SpecSensor (PM)

other sensing technologies

for example meteorological data, positioning data, …

none

quantitative: what kind of data is measured

speed, distance, noise, location,…

PM

what type of qualitative data is gathered

share observation on social media

what kind of data is calculated

CO┬▓, cost, health, … / What is the basis of calculation (e.g. reference database, European guidelines for external costs, etc.)

air quality index from PM measurements

which reporting method is used (for example: website or directly on the smartphone’s app, heat maps, dashboard, and/or reports)

mobile application

visualisations

method of reporting (visualisation) of the collected data (qualitative representation can be a red or a green light, a text explaining the progress, while quantitative representation consists of numbers or statistics

colour coding, extra information about air quality index

incentives

self-monitoring, gamification, rewards, social networks,…

self-monitoring

applicability of results

are the results useable for policy-makers and how can they obtain this information?

unknown

limitations

gaps and limitations of the campaign or application

seems that the AQI for outdoor environments is used indoor, not clear which pollutants are included for this calculation

remarks
