Air pollution: ways to forecast and calculate it

Air pollution: ways to forecast and calculate it

In recent years, the fight against air pollution has become global. Humanity, at least when we are speaking about developed countries, starts to realize finally that the Earth is our common home which can get not suitable for living in the near future. Atmospheric pollution takes place when substances harmful for living creatures diffuse throughout the surrounding air, and then this destructive activity has its toxic impact later since it causes global changes of climate of the Earth.

New air pollution APIs

New air pollution APIs

Taking into account the great importance of the climate change issue, we at OpenWeatherMap would like to make our own contribution to making this world a better place.

The first version of the APIs includes several data sets: CO (carbon), NO2 (nitrogen dioxide), O3 (ozone), SO2 (sulphur dioxide).

We hope that the air condition data, both current and historical, will give you a great opportunity to create a variety of new applications and analytic services to keep an eye on what we breathe in real time and whether there is any improvement over time.
