Plume Labs launches a live map of air pollution

(2 December 2015) As the UN Summit on Climate Change ramps up in Paris, Plume Labs has today launched its World Air Map, a live map of air pollution around the world.

The data revolution can help policymakers cut air pollution and communities take back control of their environment. Plume Labs collects half a million open data environmental measurements from 11,000 stations every day to build predictive models using open data and data sciences that anticipate hourly changes in pollution levels in 200+ metropolitan areas around the world.

By leveraging cutting-edge data sciences and technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, Plume Labs can estimate hourly air pollution levels everywhere in the worldincluding in areas that aren’t monitored stations. These models also anticipate long-distance transport of air pollutants, helping strengthen forecasting accuracy in urban areas.
