(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 world – including in areas that aren’t monitored stations. These models also anticipate long-distance transport of air pollutants, helping strengthen forecasting accuracy in urban areas.
