Air Quality 45% open


What data is expected?

Data about the daily mean concentration of air pollutants, especially those potentially harmful to human health. Data should be available for all air monitoring stations or air monitoring zones in a country. The Index focusses on key pollutants as defined by the World Health Organisation. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Particulate matter (PM)
  • Sulphur oxides (SOx)
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Ozone
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Available per air monitoring station/zone

How open is the data?

Data is generally available (including benzene, thus also VOCs are assumed to be covered) and updated hourly. Data is available per monitoring station although not all station provide data for all categories. Regarding licensing: Copyright statement at the bottom oft he portal roughly matches CC-BY-NC which does not meet Open Definition (disclaimer: IANAL).
